New Best Practice Guidelines on Applying the IUCN Protected Area Categories to Marine Protected Areas

IUCN and WCPA are pleased to announce the publication today of a new and updated edition of Best Practice Guidelines on Applying the IUCN Protected Area Categories to Marine Protected Areas. As the world moves towards understanding how well the marine % target within Aichi Target 11 is being achieved by 2020, and a new post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework is being developed, greater clarity and precision is required. The Guidelines will contribute towards meeting this need.
