The Blue4All project has recently conducted a needs assessment across its Living Labs to identify key needs and challenges within Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). This assessment, crucial for the conservation goals of each Living Lab, involved active stakeholder engagement through workshops and interviews. The findings from this assessment will help in developing targeted tools to enhance MPA management, which will be tested and validated by 2025. This initiative underscores Blue4All's commitment to fostering effective, efficient, and resilient MPAs through collaborative and informed conservation strategies.
