Agreements for MPAs and oceans

In June 2008, The Nature Conservancy, Conservation International and the Conservation and Community Investment Forum convened an invitational three-day workshop of U.S. and international experts to assess how conservation agreements can contribute to protecting the world's oceans and coasts. The workshop developed a long-term vision of strategy success; identified relevant opportunities, organizations, and stakeholders; determined needed actions, support, and funding; and initiated global recognition and acceptance of marine conservation agreements. The program guide, issue papers, tools, and case study white papers, presentations, and posters can be downloaded from the workshop web page at: http://www.leaseown.org/Resources/PMCA_Workshop.html.
