The effective management of biodiversity hot spots within protected areas that will maintain their integrity providing critical environmental services to buffering communities and the National Protected Areas System
The National Biodiversity Strategy and Action Plan was just recently completed to support the implementation of the CBD 2011 – 2020 Strategic Plan in Belize, in recognition of its commitments under the CBD. Currently no CBO managed protected area has undergone a vulnerability assessment to identify the issues of climate change impacts on ecosystems and biodiversity and the need to build resilience. This project will serve as a demonstrative project for the APAMO network that will be replicated with the objective of mainstreaming climate change into protected areas management.
