Marine Park Aruba - CLME+ HUB

    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 鈥 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.
