News: Science-Policy-Society interactions in ecosystem-based marine resources management and planning

As part of the collaboration between several institutions working in the Mediterranean, the Mediterranean Biodiversity Protection Community (MBPC) and the BlueMed CSA will host a short course on “Science-Policy-Society interactions in ecosystem-based marine resources management and planning” from 1 to 4 March 2021 in Venice, Italy.

This four-day course targets mid-career marine scientists and professionals that seek to streamline marine conservation and marine science into planning and management of marine spaces and marine resources through the use of participatory mechanisms engaging with stakeholders, resource managers, conservationists and policy makers. The Training brings together an international team: Dr Christopher Cvitanovic, Dr Andrea Barbanti, Dr Peter Mackelworth and Dr Dania Abdul Malak will convene the training; in addition, Dr Caterina Fortuna, Dr Jean-Baptiste Jouffray, and Dr Elena Gissi, among others, will lead lectures and practicals and facilitate discussions. In addition, a team of outstanding speakers will animate the second day of the course, by presenting case studies characterised by different geographic scales and socio-economic contexts.
