Mediterranean countries discuss the conservation of marine biodiversity in the Region

The Thematic Focal Points for Specially Protected Areas and Biological Diversity, representing the Mediterranean countries and the European Union, held their 14th meeting in Portorož, Slovenia, from 18 to 21 June 2019

Representatives of 20 Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention were present at the Meeting, as well as many partners (ACCOBAMS, RAMOGE, HCMR, IUCN-Med, IOGP, MEDASSET, MedPAN, The MedFund, The Shark Trust, Shark Advocates International, WWF-MedPO) and the MAP Coordinator.

This 14th edition differs from the previous ones by the involvement of MAP Focal Points and other MAP components. Indeed, seven MAP Focal Points participated in the meeting, as well as representatives of INFO/RAC, PAP/RAC and REMPEC. The purpose of this initiative was to test the "thematic" way of organizing the meeting with the integration of horizontal topics of the MAP Mid-Term Strategy with the Specially Protected Areas and Biological Diversity theme.
