In the second half of 2016, the coordination of the MPA Action Group was shared with Rare, especially in preparation for the CBD COP. Prior to the CBD COP 13, the Rare team led the policy brief development which was funded by the MPA Action Agenda. This was a critically important exercise as this then led to a joint priority, and the basis for our collaboration and intelligence sharing. The Joint Policy Brief developed for the CBD COP 13 was also used as the basis for the our Joint Policy Brief for the SDG 14 Preparatory Committee meeting in New York in February 2017.
