For the week of 15 February 2016

Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

Vertigo Lab, MedPAN, RAC/SPA, and WWF have published a new report on the Sustainable financing of Marine Protected Areas in the Mediterranean: A guide for MPA managers. "This guide aims to provide MPA managers and national authorities with tools and a step-by-step approach for the development and implementation of financial strategies. It provides useful practical knowledge for improving managers’ financial planning skills, as well as guidance on potential sources of funding which may supplement current funding, including innovative financial mechanisms." You may download the full-text using the link above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
