Project Summary:
Individuals from across Caymanian society will benefit now and in future from the enhanced MPA system and therefore support MPA implementation and operation. Understanding and acceptance of management strategies combined with modified behaviour will secure the sustainable use of resources for all, and maximise the resilience of reef ecosystems to respond to threats from invasive species and overexploitation, providing long term protection of biodiversity, personal income, property and economic activity. The Post Project outcome will secure the Main Project outcome by addressing recently identified issues that could undermine the enhanced MPA. Success will be demonstrated in the Caribbean region and beyond.
