AdriaPAN: a bottom-up network in the Adriatic Sea
AdriaPAN, the Adriatic Protected Areas Network, is a bottom-up initiative, started by 2 Italian marine protected areas, Miramare and Torre del Cerrano.
The aim of the network is to make contacts between Protected Areas in the Adriatic easier, to improve their partnership effectiveness, both in management and planning activities.
AdriaPAN is a growing network with a great potential for joining efforts in environmental protection, sustainable development.
10 Italian Protected Areas, both marine and coastal, initially signed the Cerrano Charter, the founding act of AdriaPAN. The number has now doubled. It counts over 20 members from all countries bordering the Adriatic Sea, and more than 30 associated organizations (institutions, NGOs, businesses, etc.) interested in collaborating on AdriaPAN initiatives.
Joining the network is free and the only requirement is to officially subscribe the Cerrano Charter, to achieve the mission herein defined.
