Training course: financial planning for marine protected areas

Building the financial capacity of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) is essential to ensure the sustainability of marine conservation projects in the Mediterranean.

Within the framework of the Regular Training Program of the MedPAN network, we have developed, in collaboration with MedPAN and Brijuni National Park, a training module to help MPA managers elaborate their business plan and develop a financial strategy.

Aimed at site managers, this training presents the main concepts of financial planning using a tool: the MedPAN Tool*.
