MPA Management CaMPAM

2004 saw the reactivation of the regional network of Caribbean Marine Protected Areas Managers (CaMPAM) as a follow-up to White Water to Blue Water (WW2BW). This activity includes developing MPA linkages with fishing communities, updating the MPA database, and addressing invasive species management issues within protected areas.

Other MPA Activities include continuation of the Training of Trainers (ToT) in MPA management programme initiated in 1999 with the implementation of regional courses on all aspects of marine protected areas management for English-speaking and Spanish-speaking MPA managers and implementation of local training activities. The revision and upgrading of the Training of Trainers Manual in English and Spanish will also be implemented during the biennium, as well as an evaluation of the impact of the training programme to date. The last TOT Course was held in Tulum, Mexico, 9 - 23 September 2007. Currently, an evaluation of the entire Programme from 1999 to date, is being implemented, after which the Programme will possibly be revised, as deemed necessary.
