How Marine Protected Areas networks can improve marine ecosystem resilience in the Caribean Region?

This question was at the center of the discussions during a 2 days workshop organised by IUCN and the SPAW-RAC / UNEP in St Martin, which gathered several Marine protected area managers and relevant stakeholders of the EU overseas territories in the Caribbean.

Based on the exchanges of experiences and best practices, this workshop aimed at building MPA local and national capacities to increase the resilience of the coastal marine environments to climate change through the strengthening of regional cooperation, and at exploring the development of regional action plan to that purpose.
