National Consultation on Draft Protected Areas System Plan

A meeting of key Government and civil society stakeholders was held on Friday 8th September 2017 in Trinidad, as a one-day National Consultation on a Draft Protected Areas System Plan.  This followed a similar meeting earlier on Tuesday 5th September 2017 in Tobago.  The meeting sought to discuss preliminary recommendations for harmonizing existing protected area sites with proposed sites, in order to develop the most feasible network of sites based on the criteria of representation, redundancy, resilience and realism.  Dr. Howard Nelson, a consultant to the "Improving Forest and Protected Area Management in Trinidad and Tobago" project presented the draft plan.  Learn more about the discussions at this link.
