The Regional Action Framework (RAF) is based on issues and priorities in the MaPP region and sub-regions. The RAF will be adaptive to changes that may become apparent during (or occur as a result of) implementation, or resulting from formal amendments to sub-regional marine plans.

Work plans will be developed to guide implementation of both the sub-regional marine plans and the RAF. Implementation agreements will be developed between the MaPP partners in each sub-region, and will define sub-regional governance structures. The bilateral governance structure used for MaPP plan development is anticipated to continue for sub-regional and regional activities. Stakeholder engagement will be an important component for the implementation of sub-regional marine plans and the RAF.

As part of the broader MaPP implementation financing initiative, MaPP is identifying funds from a variety of sources for the implementation of regional actions.

Refer to the Regional Action Framework for more information about regional actions on implementation.
