The International Partnership on MPAs, Biodiversity and Climate Change is an alliance of government agencies and organisations from across the world, working together to progress the evidence base around the role of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and biodiversity in tackling climate change.
Our vision is for global decision makers to implement MPA networks as nature-based solutions for biodiversity conservation and climate change mitigation, adaptation, and resilience.
Collectively we have the following goals:
Decision makers understand the link between the ocean, MPAs, and climate change and have the support needed to implement MPAs as a nature-based solution.
Decision makers link MPAs, biodiversity and climate change as a contribution to national and international commitments.
Countries globally have the evidence and tools they need to implement effective MPA networks that mitigate climate change, conserve biodiversity, and increase resilience.
