Open-ocean conservation planning

Rodolphe Devillers participated and helped organizing a 3-day workshop on systematic conservation planning in the open-ocean. The workshop took place from March 5-8th, 2012 near Brisbane, Australia, organized by Dr Natalie Ban and Prof. Bob Pressey (James Cook University) and involving 10 experts in marine conservation and systematic conservation planning. This was a very productive workshop and the outcome of the discussions will be published in the coming year to encourage the use of systematic conservation planning approaches in the open ocean.
