For the Future of the Caribbean Marine Environment

Environmental managers, park rangers and marine biologists from eight Caribbean countries meet this week in Belize to train together and share experiences in the management of marine protected areas (MPAs). An initiative of the Caribbean Environment Programme of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP-CEP) and the Caribbean Marine Protected Areas Management Network and Forum (CaMPAM), the ‘CaMPAM Training of Trainers Course’ will run for two weeks at Hol Chan Marine Reserve on the Belize Barrier Reef. The course is funded by the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in support of the ‘Caribbean Challenge’ initiative and to assist the establishment of a fully ecologically-representative, climate change resilient, and functional network of marine protected areas in the Caribbean.
