Protecting coastal zones in Colombia - CLME+ HUB

    Protecting coastal zones in Colombia

Brief Description:
The project helps environmental institutions to identify, prioritise and designate marine and coastal zones as protected areas. To this end, it analyses the impacts of climate change scenarios on various marine and coastal areas in the Caribbean Sea and supports the country in the designation of new protected areas. The project also develops and implements a sustainable management strategy for these areas in cooperation with local communities and institutions. In this way, it helps to conserve biodiversity, to mitigate the consequences of climate change and to safeguard the traditional livelihoods of local communities. The capacities of state and civil society聽stakeholders are also strengthened, enabling them to better adapt to climate change and to preserve biodiversity and聽ecosystem services
