The roadmap mid-term evaluation

This second Forum of Mediterranean MPAs is an opportunity for a mid-term assessment (4 years before the 2020 deadline) of the implementation of the Roadmap. This will also be the opportunity to update the Roadmap by integrating the issues of the Convention on Climate Change and taking into account the new international agreements adopted since 2012 such as the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

Many players will be contacted in June 2016 in the context of this evaluation via a questionnaire aiming at identifying the actions implemented since 2012 at the national, European and Mediterranean level. This questionnaire will also identify case studies to be shared during the Forum. In addition, all Forum guests will also be able to contribute to the call for ideas and innovative solutions including in other regional seas. Finally, the data collected as part of the update of the Mediterranean MPA database MAPAMED carried out by MedPAN and RAC/SPA, which analyses will be fed back during the Forum, will also contribute to the evaluation of the Roadmap.
 
The results of this evaluation, fed by the constructive dialogue expected from the Forum, will enable the formulation of specific recommendations to achieve the international, European and Mediterranean conservation and sustainable development objectives that our territories are committed to.
