DescriptionThe proposal would aim to make development greener across a key area of the coastal zone by creating an enabling environment and change the behavior of economic actors within the landscape so that key mosaic of habitats and species are secured and their needs incorporated into economic development of the region. It will do so through mainstreaming biodiversity principles into government ministries and planning and through working directly through industry, particularly tourism, agriculture, fisheries and the banking sector. It will also support the standardization and improvement of the PA network within the region through a series of demonstrations, the promotion of financial sustainability and the development of local capacity.
