Grenada Protected Areas System Gap Assessment First Workshop (2006)
At the 7th Conference of the Parties (COP-7) of the Convention on Biological Diversity
(CBD) in 2004, governments adopted an ambitious Program of Work on Protected
Areas (PoW). In adopting this PoW, Governments called for rapid “affirmative action”
to address the lack of Protected Areas across the globe.
At COP7, a group of 8 international NGOs committed to support the governments in
the implementation of this PoW. As a result of this commitment, The Nature
Conservancy signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Government of
Grenada, in which parties commit to work together in the implementation of this
program of work. This MOU is commonly known as the Protected Area National
Implementation Support Partnership (NISP).
