This project will address the capacity barriers that hinder the sustainability and effectiveness of the MPAs network in a country of the Southern Mediterranean (i.e. Libya). The project aims in developing the network of MPAs (number of sites and surface) through the establishment of MPA management support mechanisms in priority MPAs. These include: (i) the assessment of the legal and institutional mechanisms for MPAs;(ii) the collection centralization of data on marine biodiversity and ecosystems (national platform); and (iii) communication and awareness about MPAs and marine biodiversity and ecosystems. In particular, the specific work in Libya will be focus on advancing Ain-El-Ghazelah, El Kouf and Farwa Lagoon MPAs towards a phase of operational sufficiency by building the capacity of MPA practitioners, developing the management plan through a step-by-step participatory planning process to ensure the effective protection of ecological and socioeconomic values of the areas.
IUCN-Med is participating in this project as an executing agency with UNEP MAP SPA/RAC and WWF North Africa. UNEP is the lead GEF agency.
