Pays : Cape Verde

GEF Project ID : 5524

Focal Area : Biodiversity

Organisme d’exécution : Ministry of Environment, Housing and Land Planning (MAHOT) ; in collaboration with Ministry of Tourism, Industry and Energy (MTIE)

GEF Agency : UNDP

Description
To safeguard globally significant biodiversity in Cape Verde from current and emerging threats, by enhancing the enabling and regulatory frameworks in the tourism sector and activating a critical further subset of the national protected areas system.
The project will create enabling conditions to mitigate the adverse impacts on biodiversity by the tourism sector in Cape Verde. The frameworks will be developed at national level and tentatively rolled out in four priority islands – Santiago, Sal, Boavista and Maio – where immediate pressure is greatest and urgent action is required that can be replicated more widely in the future. This urgent action includes at the local level the pending operationalisation of a number of critical terrestrial and marine/ coastal PAs and the piloting of marine biodiversity and artisanal fisheries management together with communities in two selected sites. At the same time the project will harness the opportunities that more sustainable forms of tourism and fisheries offer for biodiversity, protected area management and local community development, and thereby contribute to the consolidation and diversification of Cape Verde’s tourism product
