Marine protected area networks (MPANs)—collections of marine protected areas designed to operate synergistically within a region—offer opportunities for habitat protection at large spatial scales while still allowing for diverse human activities. As communities and countries around the world forge ahead towards the establishment of MPANs to meet both local conservation objectives and global commitments to conservation targets, existing and new MPANs stand to benefit from the lessons learned by early adopters that are now undergoing retrospective reviews and evaluations. Drawing from five global MPAN case studies, review of reports and peerreviewed literature, and expert interviews, this report presents global lessons and suggested best practices for operationalizing MPAN monitoring. Part one of this report synthesizes emerging lessons for MPAN monitoring across a number of key monitoring topics. A companion Supplementary Report provides detailed case studies along with.....
