WP8: Communication & Dissemination

Co-ordinator: Vassiliki Vassilopoulou (HCMR)

This WP includes a range of measures designed to communicate the project and its results to a wide audience, across a range of stakeholder, policy-making, academic and community groups. As MPAs are of great interest to a wide range of stakeholders, influencing the livelihoods of people in the areas of their establishment, particular efforts will be made to bring together the wide public (including fishers, tourist enterprises, etc) with management bodies and the scientific community, by networking activities.

Stakeholders will be invited to participate in the project via the organized events and to participate in the planning procedures, both through informal discussions and formal consultation. Two sets of stakeholder meetings will be organized when project results are available. The results of WP4 and WP7 will be presented, and stakeholders will discuss along with the partners of the project the different scenaria, in order to commonly agree on those that will be used for future evaluation and implementation.

In the framework of this WP, the following tasks will be identified:
