Biopama I    Biodiversity And Protected Area Management Programme, Phase I


Brief Description:
BIOPAMA aims at reinforcing the management and governance of protected and conserved areas in all the 79 ACP countries. By providing unique and tailored support to protected area authorities at the local, national and regional level, it supports them in achieving their conservation objectives and to report more accurately their progress on relevant multilateral environmental agreements. Regional Observatories for protected areas coordinate information systems, data collection, analysis, monitoring and reporting and develop the capacities of staff and organisations to make optimal use of this information to address specific needs. Capacity building activities support protected area management and governance, and enable conservation practitioners, national agencies and protected areas managers to improve decision-making and prioritization of resource allocation. Site-based targeted actions support local and regional activities and their partners on biodiversity conservation to improve the knowledge base for decision making and address key priorities. The Caribbean Gateway acts as an open data for regional networking and sustainable development as it is linking data to better decision-making.

BIOPAMA tiene como objetivo reforzar la gestión y la gobernanza de las áreas protegidas en los 79 países ACP. Al brindar un apoyo único y personalizado a las autoridades de áreas protegidas a nivel local, nacional y regional, las apoya para lograr sus objetivos de conservación y provee infomación para el avance en acuerdos ambientales multilaterales relevantes. Los Observatorios Regionales de áreas protegidas coordinan los sistemas de información, la recopilación de datos, el análisis, el monitoreo y la presentación de informes y desarrollan las capacidades del personal y las organizaciones para hacer un uso óptimo de esta información para atender necesidades específicas. Las actividades de creación de capacidad apoyan la gestión y la gobernanza de las áreas protegidas y permiten a los profesionales de la conservación, las agencias nacionales y los administradores de áreas protegidas mejorar la toma de decisiones y la priorización de la asignación de recursos. Las acciones específicas basadas en el sitio apoyan las actividades locales y regionales y sus socios en la conservación de la biodiversidad para mejorar la base de conocimientos para la toma de decisiones y abordar las prioridades clave. Caribbean Gateway actúa como un dato abierto para la creación de redes regionales y el desarrollo sostenible, ya que vincula los datos para mejorar la toma de decisiones.
