Protected Areas and Wildlife Management Project

Project Summary

The development objective of the proposed project is the improved management of Trinidad and Tobago’s protected areas and wildlife resources. Project components would include: (i) establishment of the National Parks and Wildlife Authority; (ii) establishment and management of national parks and other protected areas; and (iii) community development that is compatible with biodiversity conservation. The project’s global objective is to conserve globally important coastal habitats that are included in the "Global 200" ecoregions and are also Ramsar sites. Within the national parks and protected areas component, GEF would support conservation of the most critical of these sites through the establishment of effective management regimes. The project’s expected results are: (i) strengthening of the legal, regulatory and institutional framework for the management of protected areas and wildlife; (ii) effective management of proposed national parks, other protected areas and wildlife; and (iii) a framework for community development and participation in the national parks and other protected areas to be established through the project.
