Protected Areas Program

Project Summary

The project supports selected conservation activities on the basis of detailed management plans for ten protected area sites. The development and supervi-sion of management plans will be guided by Technical Advisory Committees, composed of representatives of local communities, non-governmental organizations, local governments and other stakeholders. An ecotourism plan will be prepared and implemented in one of the protected area sites on a pilot basis, for potential replication in other areas. An endowment fund will be established to provide stable long-term financing for basic protection and conservation activities in and around the 10 protected areas.
