National MPA Center Strategic Plan 2010 – 2015

Created: 10/31/2009 - Updated: 3/14/2019


The MPA Center Strategic Plan was revised in 2009 to more accurately reflect the organization’s evolving structure and priorities, with a greater emphasis on further developing the national system of MPAs and its operational capabilities. The plan also includes special interest areas of importance to the design and implementation of the national system over the next five year planning cycle.

The MPA Center recognizes that the ongoing development and implementation of the national system of MPAs is a dynamic process requiring adaptive management. As the national system of MPAs matures, this Plan also will evolve in recognition of accomplishments and future requirements.
