United Nations
Enhance the capacities for marine biodiversity conservation and sustainable use
by National Directorate of Environment (Government)
Comprehensive training programme within National Directorate of Environment (DNA) for enhancing institutional and staff capacity for the new marine PA management unit, enforcement and financing will be effectively operationalized. Similar trainings will be extended also to relevant officers on island Ministry delegations and local conservation NGOs working in the Santa Luzia MPA.
A PA System Financing Strategy and Plan will be drafted and implemented. This will entail the implementation of traditional PA finance elements but also more advanced innovative elements, and involve an identification of management needs, the establishment of a PA finance database, a rigorous PA finance needs and gap assessment, a Biodiversity Public Expenditure Review (PER) to determine financing baselines and identify opportunities to realign budgets and enhance spending effectiveness and efficiency.
