Term Conserving the Biodiversity of the Dominican Republic

The Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF), as the funding body, made an assessment after completing the first phase of the program developed for five years. The meeting was held at the National Botanic Garden, where they shared the results and the lessons learned, both at home and in the Caribbean region.

The attendees of the activity, on behalf of the CEPF were: Olivier Langrand, CEO and Michele Zador, Director of Grants; on behalf of the funding agencies: Sarah Soriano, of the European Union and Huáscar Peña, of the International Cooperation Agency of Japan. Also attended José Mateo, Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources; Francisco Nuñez, of The Nature Conservancy; Ricardo Garcia of the National Botanic Garden; Anna Cadiz and Leida Buglass, of the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI), among others.

Within results of the CEPF-funded projects are the creation of the first private protected area in the country designed - with the community participation - of the management plans for the national parks of Sierra de Bahoruco and Montaña La Humeadora, and the approval by the Ministry of Environment.

Also, the creation of committees to follow up the management plans to promote the participatory sustainability of protected areas, the training of rangers, the training of promoters of biodiversity, creating strategic alliances and strengthening links between institutions.
