Marine Protected Area Contracts are voluntary governance tools built on Environmental Contracts that originated in France in the early eighties to control pollution and flooding, manage hydraulic structures and raise stakeholder awareness. This tool responds to the need for a strategic and collaborative approach to Mediterranean marine protected area (MPA) management and biodiversity protection, based on the active participation of local stakeholders. The overall aim of the tool is to improve coordination and encourage the effectiveness of MPA management and planning in the Mediterranean.
This tool has been developed and/or tested under the Interreg MED TUNE UP project and has been incorporated into the MBPC/ENSERES Mediterranean Biodiversity Protection Tools Catalogue.
