Priority Actions to Consolidate Biodiversity Protection in the Sabana-Camaguey Ecosystem

Project Summary

The project is aimed at supporting the incorporation of biodiversity concerns into integrated coastal zone management. This consolidation phase project focuses on the northern archipelago of the Sabana-Camaguey Ecosystem (SCE) in central Cuba, which harbors marine and terrestrial biodiversity of global significance. The diversity is threatened principally by conventional tourism development , and more locally and to a much lesser extent, from over-fishing and agro-industrial pollution. The successfully completed of the first stage of the GEF-funded project (1993-1997) established the scientific and institutional foundations for biodiversity conservation through integrated management of the entire3 SCE.
