MedCities participated in the signature of the annexes of the Memorandum of Understanding between the Permanent Secretariat of the Pelagos Agreement and the Mediterranean Biodiversity Protection Community (MBPC), which has been developed with the objective of promoting and facilitating technical and scientific transboundary cooperation in the design and implementation of biodiversity protection and management actions.

The Memorandum of Understanding has been developed in the frame of the Pelagos Sanctuary Management and Action Plan (2022-2027), adopted by the Contracting Parties (France, Italy and Monaco) at the 8th Meeting of the Parties (COP 8) held in Rome on 15th and 16th December 2021. During a side event at COP 8, the MBPC, representing more than 300 actors including nature conservationists, marine protected area managers, among others, and 17 projects working in the Mediterranean region, together with the Pelagos Secretariat, agreed on and signed all five Annexes detailing the committed actions that will be co-financed by the Interreg Mediterranean Programme for the time period 2021-2022. 

As partner of the MBPC, MedCities committed to engage in this support for a period of at least one year especially focusing on capacity building and networking activities addressing local authorities signatories of the Pelagos Charter around pressures as pollution and recreational sailing.
