The project ‘Actions for Marine Protected Areas’ will promote integrated management of the Mediterranean through maritime spatial planning. Shared methodologies and geospatial tools for multiple stressors assessment shall be developed and translated into pilot actions and coordinated strategies in selected marine protected areas (MPAs). The UoM selected one MPA in the North East of Malta (spanning from Marsalforn to St Paul’s Bay), where data shall be collected to contribute to the building of a geoportal for the project that will incorporate information on every marine aspect. The geoportal that will be developed by the project partners on selected MPAs will help create marine spatial tools to better manage protected areas around the rest of the Mediterranean.
