MPA Action Group members prepared key messages for the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) fourteenth meeting of the Conference of the Parties (COP 14). These messages were applied to jointly advocate for ambitious marine and coastal-related decisions to be taken by CBD COP 14 for the achievement of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets, in particular regarding agenda items 24, 25 and 21.
The key messages covered the following marine topics:
