PHAROS4MPAs in Madrid PANACeA workshop

The University of Girona, as core partner of the PHAROS4MPAs project, participated in a PANACeA workshop "Biodiversity Protection Community" held in Madrid on the 4th July 2019, in collaboration with the Sub-Directorate General for the Protection of the Sea (MITECO) of the Spanish government.

The aim of the workshop was to share the achievements and progress of The Biodiversity Protection Community (BPC) of the Interreg MED program, through its Spanish partners.

The UdG presented a summary of the PHAROS4MPAs project, with an emphasis on the recreational sectors for which UdG is in charge (recreational fisheries, leisure boating and scuba diving).

This was a good opportunity to disseminate the first results of PHAROS4MPAs to the Spanish institutions in charge of marine and MPA management.
