In T-MEDNet, the monitoring of indicators is conducted via standardized protocols. The information found in the protocols is complemented by video tutorials.

The series of standard protocols provides practical guidance to track climate-related impacts in Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and beyond.

Technically, these protocols, which enable a consolidated climate change impact monitoring strategy, are inspired by the concept of Essential Climate Variables and focus on a restricted set of simple measurements to capture greater dimensions of environmental change.

Adopting these protocols, allow participants to join a common and consolidated strategy to track climate change effects. This will improve, complement or extend the ongoing monitoring initiatives in the different Mediterranean countries.
