14 January, 2019

The PANACeA initiative, as part of their work to mainstream the efforts of the Interreg Med Biodiversity Protection Community, presented the Declaration on Ecosystem-based approaches for biodiversity protection and management in the Mediterranean, in December at the EU Parliament in Brussels, in collaboration with the Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup (SEARICA). The Declaration summarises state-of-the-art knowledge compiled from 11 thematic projects and 200 partner organisations concerning threats and pressures in the Mediterranean and highlights a series of principles to guide future joint actions towards more effective and transnational management of key ecological assets that are grounded on a holistic and ecosystem based approach.

The signature of the Declaration will take place during the final PANACeA Conference in Malaga in October 2019.  Signatures from Declaration supporters can be submitted by sending an email to and join their community and its collective message.
