16/06/2018: Monaco Blue Initiative 2018 - Marine Protected Areas and Climate Change

Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) have proven to be an effective tool to resist the growing threats to the marine environment and afford marine ecosystems greater resilience to the impacts of climate change.

Healthier oceans provide greater adaptive capacity to climate change for both ecosystems and the people that depend upon them. In addition, MPAs covering habitats like mangroves, seagrass beds and salt marshes can mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon.

While recent MPA growth has been impressive, it is insufficient both with regard to numbers and size to ensure effective conservation of ocean biodiversity and ecosystem services. The panel discussed how to make MPAs more effective by making them bigger and better connected, and to do so more quickly.


MBI 2018 was held in Edinburgh on April 8-9, 2018. Read International Aquafeed's report HERE.
