Updating the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) Ecosystem Profile for the Caribbean Islands Biodiversity Hotpot

Brief Description:
The goal of the project is to update the ecosystem profile for the Caribbean Islands biodiversity hotspot through a participatory process. The ecosystem profile will take advantage of emerging opportunities and align with existing investments by governments and other donors, and will provide a platform through which funders and other partners interested in supporting civil society groups in the hotspot can share goals and strategies. The updated profile will be a snapshot of the hotspot in 2017 that describes the current state of, and threats to, biodiversity and the capacity of civil society to engage as a partner in conservation. The framework for a new investment in the Caribbean Islands biodiversity hotspot is being done through a series of national and regional meetings, which would bring opportunities to shape the updated CEPF ecosystem profile and investment framework for the region. This project follows a successful initial five-year investment that ended in July 2016. The project is comprising on a consultative process that will define the parameters of the new CEPF investment in the Caribbean.

El objetivo del proyecto es actualizar el perfil del ecosistema para el hotspot de biodiversidad de las Islas del Caribe a través de un proceso participativo. El perfil del ecosistema aprovechará las oportunidades emergentes y se alineará con las inversiones existentes de los gobiernos y otros donantes, y proporcionará una plataforma a través de la cual los financiadores y otros socios interesados ​​en apoyar a los grupos de la sociedad civil en el hotspot pueden compartir objetivos y estrategias. El perfil actualizado será una instantánea del hotspot en 2017 que describe el estado actual y las amenazas a la biodiversidad y la capacidad de la sociedad civil para participar como socio en la conservación. El marco para una nueva inversión en el hotspot de biodiversidad de las Islas del Caribe se está realizando a través de una serie de reuniones nacionales y regionales, que brindarían oportunidades para dar forma al perfil del ecosistema y el marco de inversión actualizados del CEPF para la región. Este proyecto sigue a una exitosa inversión inicial de cinco años que finalizó en julio de 2016. El proyecto comprende un proceso consultivo que definirá los parámetros de la nueva inversión del CEPF en el Caribe.
