Welcome to IMPAC4 2017 Chile!

Chile will have the privilege of hosting the 4th International Marine Protected Areas Congress, IMPAC4, which will be held in La Serena-Coquimbo from September 4th– 8th, 2017.

We extend a warm welcome to all MPA friends and practitioners from across the world!

In this opportunity, we are happy to launch our official IMPAC4 Chile 2017 website that will provide the Marine Protected Areas (MPA) community, the basic information about the congress.

Marine Protected Areas are extremely dynamic and energetic environments where humans meet the ocean. Fishing, aquaculture, tourism, recreation, navigation, sailing and scientific research are just a few of the activities that take place in MPAs. Given the complex nature of MPAs, participants from multidisciplinary backgrounds will reconvene in La Serena, Chile for IMPAC4, an international conference with a program that covers a wide array of topics, including management tools, conservation biology, ecology, fisheries, climate change, monitoring, enforcement, community development, communications, education, business administration, and much more!

During four full days, plus an initial welcome evening, recent activities and trends in MPA management and science will be presented and discussed. A more detailed program will be available soon once principal topics and streams have been defined.

In addition to the day to day topics of the program, IMPAC4 will provide opportunities for networking and collaboration among participants over the cross-cutting themes, such as:

  • Engaging youth in MPAs;
  • Communicating the relevance of MPAs;
  • Challenges for MPAs in polar & subpolar ecosystems;
  • Large and remote MPAs
  • MPAs in the high seas
  • The role of MPAs in reducing the impacts of natural disasters

Available soon
