Jamaica: Master plan for country's PA system to be finished this year
A Protected Areas System Master Plan is to be developed, which promotes a co-ordinated approach to Protected Areas management within the Government and across the other sectors of society.
"An important section of the Master Plan concerns the sustainable financing of Protected Areas and proposes strategies to be taken to accomplish this, one of which is the establishment of a National Trust Fund,” Minister of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Robert Pickersgill, has said.
He added that the Master Plan is presently being finalised and will be completed this year.
