Developing a National Protected Area System Plan

A Protected Area System Plan is an attempt to express a country’s vision of how (and how much of) its natural heritage is used for both conservation and sustainable use. 

Such a plan should cover the range of ecosystems present, link the key players (including civil society) responsible for developing and managing protected areas, include processes for defining management options, setting priorities and integrating with other land use.  

Work has recently begun to develop a National Protected Area System Plan in Trinidad and Tobago, under the “Improving Forest and Protected Area Management in Trinidad and Tobago” project.  

Learn more about the context for and benefits of developing the Plan at this link.
