Draft National Protected Areas System Plan Consultations

The Improving Forest and Protected Area Management in Trinidad and Tobago Project (IFPAM) is facilitating National Consultations on a draft National Protected Area System Plan.  A session was held in Tobago on 5th September 2017 at the Community Development Conference Room, Glen Road, and another will take place in Trinidad on 8th September 2017 at the PETROTRIN Pointe-à-Pierre Club.

The National Protected Area System Plan will include a range of sites within the terrestrial, riverine, coastal and marine environment.  The Plan’s intention is to provide a structured framework, as defined in the National Protected Areas Policy (2011), for a system of protected areas ranging from management for strict conservation to management for ecologically sound activities.  The System’s proposed design is guided by representation, resiliency, redundancy and realism in selection of these sites.
