    - Idées de coopérations
    The Cyclades FLAG, Greece, is looking for partners to build a practical working group on fostering socio-economic development around MPAs. The idea is to bring together Mediterranean FLAGs that are home to a Marine Protected Area to exchange and discuss ways to ensure MPAs are successful in protecting biodiversity while remaining economically viable. Participating FLAGs would take turns to organise and host a workshop and case study on the topic, starting in early 2019. Read on for further details.
