The Roc-Pop-Life Consortium

The Consortium is  composed by:

The project involves as partners all the managers of the MPAs interested in the action including Portofino and Strunjan MPAs (donor sites), Cinque Terre and Miramare MPAs (receiving sites). All the authorities involved in the management and regulation of the target Natura2000sites expressed their interest already (see attached letters) including: Italian Ministry of Environment, ISPRA (Istituto superiore per la protezione e la ricerca ambientale), Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Nature Conservation. Moreover, several international associations share and supports this proposal, evaluating it as a good practice replicable in other MPAs:

  • MEDPAN, Mediterranean network of MPAs
  • RAC/SPA (Regional Activity Centre for Specially Protected Areas) established within the Barcelona Convention, aiming at the conservation of ecosystems in the Mediterranean taking into account sustainable management/ecosystem approach
  • ADRIAPAN the Adriatic network of Protected Areas
  • WWF MedPO the WWF Mediterranean Programme Office
