IMPAC 3 : 3rd edition of the International Marine Protected Areas Congress

Marseille & Corsica - 21-27 October 2013


In 2013, the Agence des aires marines protégées (French Marine Protected Areas Agency) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) are co-organizing the 3rd edition of the International Marine Protected Areas Congress (IMPAC3).

Every four years, the congress brings together major maritime stakeholders from around the globe, beyond national or sectoral boundaries, to assist in the conservation and sustainable development of the oceans. Previous editions were held in Geelong, Australia, in 2005 and Washington, D.C., in 2009.

For the third edition, the core of the congress will take place in Marseille from Oct. 21 to Oct. 25. It will be followed by a high-level political meeting in Corsica on Oct. 26 and 27 (invitation only).

Participants represent public management and planning agencies, research institutions, non-governmental organizations, coastal or island communities, and sea-related industries, from fishing to cable laying, mining, shipping and tourism.

All work together toward one goal: protecting the Ocean and its resources for future generations.
