AdriaPAN meets MedPAN

On Thursday 26.11 Carlo Franzosini, as representative of AdriaPAN, met the Board of MedPAN at the headquarters of Sinis MPA, in Sardinia. Following the invitation of MedPAN addressed to the secretariat of AdriaPAN, we discussed about an evolution of our Adriatic network meant at providing a legal status for it.

1)    The demand for a legal status

AdriaN is, currently, a voluntary association. In order to finalize its underlying purpose – which is to "maximize the planning capacity through partnership" - it should evolve towards a form of association with a clear own juridical personality, eligible for EU funding. Our future capacity to participate to the public calls for the Adriatic-Ionian region, focusing environmental conservation, the management and establishment of MPA networks, depends on this fulfillment.

AdriaPAN intervention to the “ADRIPLAN (ADRiatic Ionian maritime spatial PLANning) Transnational Conference”.
28th February 2014, Rijeka, Croatia.
Panel 4Fisheries, aquaculture and Marine Protected Areas

MPAs are an asset for Pillar 3 of the Adriatic-Ionian strategy: they could serve as reference point and control sites for marine biodiversity, but also as dissemination/awareness tool.

Having in mind the present situation of the marine environment, we have to ask for more MPAs in the adriatic-ionian sub-region. Its high diversity is spanning from the Jabuka pit to the wetlands in Albania and on the northern side, to the croatian and slovenian cliffs, to the sandy shorelines.
