MedPAN is the network of Marine Protected Areas managers in the Mediterranean. MedPAN gathers together 131 institutions and NGOs from 21 Mediterranean countries that either have direct responsibility for managing Marine Protected Areas (MPA) or are involved in the development of MPAs in the Mediterranean. These players manage or work with over 110 MPAS in 19 Mediterranean countries. The network exists since the 90s. It is run since 2010 by the MedPAN organisation, a permanent structure with dedicated funds established in late 2008.
