NOAA also maintains a Web site that provides access to the inventory 
<http://www3.mpa.gov/mpa_lib/virtual_library.aspx>, as well as access to 
a Virtual Library on MPAs 
<http://www3.mpa.gov/mpa_lib/virtual_library.aspx>. Included in the 
inventory are the 13 national marine sanctuaries, managed directly by 
NOS, 27 national estuarine research reserves, managed by states in 
partnership with NOS, and data on many coastal and Great Lakes states 
(data collection for states is ongoing). NOAA Fisheries, the U.S. Fish 
and Wildlife Service, and the National Park Service manage other MPAs 
listed in the inventory. The Web site also provides information on how 
MPAs are classified 
as well as descriptive case studies 
on selected MPAs

This workshop  will take place in France and should help the french government to set up its own strategy for a mpa network design. I started to read recent publications on the subject (especially Roberts et al., 2003 and Halpern, 2002) and I’m wondering how far Roberts’ point of vue on evaluation scheme and main criteria is shared by the community?
