Sustainable Financing for Protected Areas report

A report on the study undertaken for sustainable financing of protected areas in Trinidad and Tobago is now available on this website.  The study was undertaken as a key activity of the "Improving Forest and Protected Area Management in Trinidad and Tobago project" (2015-2020).  The report outlines various recommendations to financially support the management of protected areas including strategies such as: creation of a legal framework to facilitate partnerships; defining management actions to be financed at the system and site levels; identifying and capitalising a fund for protected area management; redesign of the Green Fund; and undertaking a financial needs assessment for a national protected area management system.  The report can be accessed here.
