FAO Implements $30 Million Conservation Project in Trinidad and Tobago

SAN JUAN – The UN Food and Agriculture Organization is implementing a $30 million project in Trinidad and Tobago to conserve biodiversity, the government said Friday in a statement.

The project involves establishing six pilot protected areas to test models of sustainable natural resource management.

The four areas identified in Trinidad are: Caroni Swamp; Nariva Swamp and coastal zone; the Matura Forest and coastal zone; and the Trinity Hills.

Two areas in Tobago are included in the project: the Main Ridge Forest Reserve and the North-East Tobago Marine Protected Area.

The initiative aims to systematically monitor biodiversity and address possible threats; create management plans for the protected areas; and draft national legislation for the establishment and management of protected areas, among other objectives.

The project is funded by FAO, the government’s Green Fund, the World Bank’s Global Environment Facility and the European Union.
