Proposed System of protected Areas in Grenada&Carriacou

Proposed System of Protected Areas in Grenada & Carriacou Workshop Presentation 10th Feb. 2010 Background This System Plan was prepared for the Environment and Sustainable Development Unit (ESDU) of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) under OECS Contract No. 08.21/OPAAL-WB, and is part of the third component of the OECS Protected Areas and Associated Livelihoods (OPAAL) ProjectPreparation of the System Plan for Protected Areas for Grenada. Background Cont.

Grenada, at the 2006, 8th Meeting of the Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 8) pledged, the Grenada Declaration, to effectively conserve [1] at least 25% of its near shore marine area and at least 25% or its terrestrial area by 2020 [1] This plan interprets effective conservation to mean designation of protected areas using the IUCN definition of a protected area, a clearly defined geographical space, recognized, dedicated and managed, through legal or other effective means, to achieve the long-term conservation of nature with associated ecosystem services and cultural values (Dudley, 2008). Background Cont. This system plan for protected areas is composed of two parts: the identification of

sites that Government should consider for designation as protected areas (Part 1) and a separate, companion document, that outlines ways and means to manage and administer the sites designated (Part 2). Background Cont The purpose of this part of the plan, Part 1, is to confirm Grenadas existing protected areas and identify nationally-significant marine and terrestrial environments that meet the criteria as potential protected areas and could be designated, in a phased approach, as protected areas by 2020, thus meeting the goals of the Grenada Declaration
