Stakeholders are increasingly at the centre of Marine Protected Area (MPA) planning and management across the Atlantic area, but there has been little opportunity to share experiences and lessons learned to progress MPA design and development within stakeholder- centred processes. This workshop will be an important opportunity to share approaches within MAIA partner countries. It will transfer skills and knowledge at a number of different levels to ensure that MPA planning and management can be more effectively designed for stakeholder input and participation.
There will be a presentation about MESMA "Governance issues emerging through MCZ design processes in SW England" by Peter Jones in Session 1.
