Marine Park Aruba


Brief Description:
The project established a multi-use marine park for Aruba by enacting the necessary legislation for its creation and put in place the structures for its long-term management by setting-up a management organisation and developing a management plan with stakeholder input to promote nondestructive activities. The park will encompass four Key Biodiversity Areas (KBAs): Parke Nacional Arikok; Spaans Lagoen (Spanish Lagoon) and Sero Colorado and Mangel Halto – Isla di Oro. A management plan for each of these KBAs will be developed to guide the maintenance and restoration of their ecosystems, biological diversity and ecological processes along with climate adaptation project plans. A communications plan to build awareness and, most importantly, ownership of the KBAs will form a crucial part of the management and project plans. This is a BEST 2 initiative project.

El proyecto estableció un parque marino de usos múltiples para Aruba mediante la promulgación de la legislación necesaria para su creación y puso en marcha las estructuras para su gestión a largo plazo mediante el establecimiento de una organización de gestión y el desarrollo de un plan de gestión con aportes de las partes interesadas para promover actividades no destructivas. . El parque abarcará cuatro Áreas Clave de Biodiversidad (ACB): Parke Nacional Arikok; Spaans Lagoen (Laguna Española) y Sero Colorado y Mangel Halto - Isla di Oro. Se desarrollará un plan de gestión para cada una de estas ACB para guiar el mantenimiento y restauración de sus ecosistemas, diversidad biológica y procesos ecológicos junto con planes de proyectos de adaptación climática. Un plan de comunicaciones para crear conciencia y, lo que es más importante, la propiedad de las ACB formará una parte crucial de los planes de gestión y del proyecto. Este es un proyecto de iniciativa BEST 2.
