06/24: Calls for consultation for socio-economic and ecological studies of Bsis Island in Libya

Bsis Island

Deadline for submission: July 15, 2024








The SPA/RAC is launching two calls for consultation, one for conducting an ecological characterization of the coastal and marine area of Bsis Island in Libya, and the second for developing a socio-economic study of this zone.

Bsis Island is potentially eligible for designation as a Marine Protected Area (MPA). The information gathered from both studies will be crucial for the development of a management plan that will contribute to the effective management and preservation of the terrestrial, coastal, and marine heritage components of the future MPA.

This initiative is supported by the EU-funded project " Bolstering Mediterranean Biodiversity and MCPAs for Nature " (SEMPA Project).
