Plan Bleu is organizing a series of two webinars focusing on Sustainable aquaculture in the Mediterranean Region

As part of its Programme on the Blue Economy in the framework of the Barcelona Convention, Plan Bleu is organizing a series of two webinars focusing on Sustainable aquaculture in the Mediterranean Region, in collaboration with key partners of the sector such as FAO/GFCM, WestMED, IUCN, the Interreg Med Blue Growth community and Biodiversity protection community .

The 1st online event entitled “Towards a sustainable aquaculture in the Mediterranean Region” was held on 3rd November 2020. This event gathered around a hundred participants representing all categories of stakeholders (researchers, private and public sector, NGOs, International organization) from 27 countries.

The main objective of this series of webinar is, given the sector’s overall long-term trends and impacts, to identify innovations able to effectively address the aquaculture sustainability challenges as well as the necessary conditions for their capitalization.

Please, note that the second webinar will be held on 16th November 2020.

The webinars’ outcomes will support the development of a road map identifying main challenges faced by the sector of aquaculture in the Mediterranean region, proposing relevant tools and approaches to address them for ensuring the sustainability of the sector. All categories of stakeholders will be involved through a long-term participative process. The outcomes of the webinars will also feed the MED2050 Report, an ambitious foresight exercise designed as an original science-policy interface, aiming at mobilizing decision makers and stakeholders from the North and South of the Mediterranean, going beyond geographical and institutional borders. The Report will confront several visions of the Mediterranean future by 2050 (with an intermediate step at 2030) and co-construct solid and grounded transition paths towards common goals.
