Welcome to the website of the first International Workshop on Advancing Conservation Planning In The Mediterranean Sea, graciously hosted in the Canaves Oia Hotel in Santorini, Greece from April 2 to April 5, 2012.

This workshop aimed to bring together experts involved with conservation planning of the Mediterranean Sea, in order to inform each other about ongoing projects and future collaborations. Due to the novelty of conservation planning in this area and importance of implementing conservation measures, this workshop provided an opportunity to collaborate and advance current conservation research efforts and programs. The objective was to emerge from the workshop with expanded knowledge, enhanced cooperation between researchers and countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea and clear goals for future projects and partnerships.
