Brief Description:
Develop partnerships to increase of technical skills on MPA management and enhanced the use of the methodological and operational tool for EBM-Decision Support System (EBM-DSS), providing decision makers with truly systemic objective planning and management capacities for sustainable development. The CaMPAM MPA database was significantly improved. The EBM-DSS tool was successfully applied in the Dominican Republic, in two pilot sites, Puerto Plata and Montecristi, with results emanating priority actions for implementation and monitoring. Training and capacity building were carried out in Spanish and English speaking countries, through the SPAW CaMPAM Programme (22 countries) in the Wider Caribbean, as well as through two main regional workshops carried out in synergy with institutional partners in the region. Dissemination and awareness raising of EBM-DSS were carried through different regional fora during the course of the project, as well as through a Teamwork Platform and short-term social media campaign led by CEP.
