Consultancy – Establishment of baseline data of the protected areas in Belize

Establish baseline data of the management effectiveness of the protected areas in Belize

Project Belize, Selva Maya Natural Resources Protection Project (KfW/IUCN)
Sub activity 1.1.3.1: To strengthen the effective management of resources in the protected areas
RESPONSIBLE: Saul Cruz, Forest Officer
Juanita Garcia-Saqui, National Liaison Officer

Background and Justification:
 
Selva Maya is a strategic block of important natural ecosystems. It is the second largest tropical forest of America, after the Amazon rainforest. It possesses an extraordinary diversity of endemic and endangered species, as well as important sites of historical and cultural heritage. Located between Belize, Guatemala and the southeast of Mexico, covers 42,300 square kilometers in a corridor of protected natural areas in which different categories of management converge. In some cases, these areas are separated by international boundaries but united by conservation and sustainable management efforts by governments, civil society and cooperation agencies, among other relevant actors.
 
The interest in protecting Selva Maya is reflected in the laws and initiatives of the three countries. For protected areas to have the desired effect, it is necessary to strengthen the capacity of institutions, their representatives and implementers at the local level and the communities in the region. In addition, it is necessary to handle the pressure that comes from increasing population, migration and unsustainable land use.
 
In this regard, on October 10th of 2010, the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Central American Commission for Environment and Development (CCAD, for its acronym in Spanish) celebrated the Financial Cooperation Contribution Contract. In 2014, the Governments of Belize, Guatemala and Mexico, together with KfW, during the XLII Special Meeting of CCAD, elected the Regional Office for Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean (ORMACC, for its acronym in Spanish) of IUCN as the organization responsible for financial implementation and technical support of the Project ” Selva Maya Natural Resources Protection Project, SMP”, whose objective is to maintain the ecosystemic functions and cultural values of the Selva Maya that promotes the well-being of its people and offers environmental services of global importance.
 
The area of intervention is focused on Selva Maya protected areas of Mexico, Guatemala and Belize and the implementation of the project will be coordinated and co-executed by the protected areas entities of each country:

  • In Belize, by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry, the Environment and Sustainable Development (MAFFESD);
  • In Mexico, the National Commission of Protected Natural Areas (CONANP, as per the Spanish acronym) will be the leading entity, in particular the Yucatan Peninsula and the Mexican Caribbean directorate;
  • In Guatemala, it is the National Council of Protected Areas (CONAP, as per the Spanish acronym) through its Regional Office in Petén.

 

 

Basic Concepts:

The SMP aims to improve the management effectiveness of the Selva Maya Protected Areas, its connectivity, and strengthen coordination capacity between Belize, Guatemala and Mexico for conservation and sustainable management actions of the Selva Maya.
 
Protected areas prioritized for the project implementation in Belize
 
Areas of work are grouped into 3 blocks and a private protected area:

    New South Cebada Conservation Post

    NEW SOUTH CEBADA CONSERVATION POST FOR THE CHIQUIBUL NATIONAL PARK

     

    June 15, 2018 — (Belmopan, BZE) Yesterday, June 14, 2018, the Protected Areas Conservation Trust (PACT) along with the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry, the Environment, Sustainable Development and Immigration (MAFFESDI), the Ministry of National Security, and the Friends for Conservation and Development (FCD) inaugurated a new Conservation Post in the South Cebada area of the Chiquibul National Park. 

    Government, NGO and Financing Partners at the Inauguration of the Cebada CP, June 14, 2018  
    On hand for the inauguration was a delegation of Ministers, Chief Executive Officers, and Heads of Department led by Hon. Dr. Omar Figueroa, Minister of Environment and Hon. John Saldivar, Minister of National Security. The South Cebada Conservation Post was financed through the Chiquibul Forest Investment Initiative (CFII) at a cost of BZ$115,000. The CFII was launched in 2016 and represents the single largest investment in the protection and conservation of Belize’s biodiversity. 

     
    The $2.28 Million being invested by PACT and the Environmental Management Fund is aimed at addressing key threats from illegal land use practices in the Chiquibul Forest by strengthening multi-institutional capacity. The CFII is being implemented by a consortium of partners, namely the FCD, Ya’axché Conservation Trust, the Belize Forest Department, and the Belize Defence Force. The CFII investment focus spans the Chiquibul National Park, Chiquibul Forest Reserve, Vaca Forest Reserve, Columbia River Forest Reserve, Bladen Nature Reserve, and Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve.

    The Conservation Post at South Cebada is 20’ x 33’ in size and was designed to accommodate an enforcement team of 12. Its main features include sleeping quarters, outdoor kitchen, hygiene facilities, a water catchment system, a photovoltaic solar power system and a 25’ lookout tower. This is the second Conservation Post financed through the CFII with the Caballo CP built and inaugurated just last year. Hon. Dr. Omar Figueroa, during his address noted that “with the two conservation posts financed through the CFII the number of CPs in the Chiquibul now stands at seven (7).

    Cebada Conservation Post, June 14, 2018


    Coupled with the enforcement stations in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve and Bladen Nature Reserve, these CPs will form a more robust network of permanent outposts in the Chiquibul Forest geared towards biodiversity protection and security”. While the conservation posts and access roads have added much needed infrastructure in the Chiquibul, the CFII has contributed far more at improving the dialogue and coordination among consortium partners. The Initiative continues to contribute necessary human resources and capacity. From the consortium alone, a total of 34 trained enforcement personnel has been made available to support biodiversity conservation in the Chiquibul along with the BDF and Police. As a direct output, a 43% increase in ranger force translating to at least 50% increase in enforcement efficiency has been realized after just the first year of implementation. PACT would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all consortium members, enforcement teams, and partner agencies for their service to this country through their hard work and their pledge to defend the biodiversity and integrity of these protected areas. Also, we would like to express our gratitude to the FCD, Ministry of Environment, and the Ministry of National Security for key technical and logistical support towards the success of the inauguration ceremony and the wider initiative.

    ###

    PACT was formally established in January 1996 with the passing of the Protected Areas Conservation Trust Act, No. 15 of 1995, creating the institution as a Statutory Board. PACT contributes to the effective management of Belize’s National Protected Areas System (NPAS) through strategic partnerships and high impact investments. The PACT is managed by a Board of Directors that is comprised of Government agencies, non-government organizations and individual experts.

    New Caballo Conservation Post for Chiquibul National Park

    NEW CABALLO CONSERVATION POST FOR THE CHIQUIBUL NATIONAL PARK

    July 31, 2017— (Belmopan, BZE) Through funding from the Protected Areas Conservation Trust (PACT) and the Environmental Management Fund (EMF), a new conservation post has been constructed in the Chiquibul National Park at a cost of BZ $115,000. Today, an official inauguration was held for the Caballo Conservation Post after which a tour of the new facilities was provided to guests. Present at the inauguration were Hon. Dr. Omar Figueroa, Minister of State in the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry, the Environment and Sustainable Development (MAFFESD) as well as CEO in the Ministry and PACT Board Chair Dr. Percival Cho, and CEO in the Ministry of Defense Felix Enriquez among others. The new conservation post is part of the Chiquibul Forest Investment Initiative (CFII) that was launched in December 2016. The main objective of the initiative is to increase the management and enforcement presence within the Chiquibul, Columbia, and Vaca forest areas. PACT Board Chair Dr. Cho, in his welcome remarks, highlighted that “the Caballo conservation post is but one part of a larger goal aimed at encouraging multi-institutional strategy and strengthening the capacity for joint law enforcement and protection of the Chiquibul.

    Over the years, the Western border of Belize along the Chiquibul and surrounding areas have been subject to illegal gold panning, logging, and poaching among other activities. PACT and the EMF’s investment of BZ $2.28 million in the CFII aims to minimize the effects of illegal cross-border activities by increasing the management presence and enforcement within the Chiquibul. The CFII also brings together four key partners working in the most afflicted areas. Known as the CFII Consortium, beneficiaries include the Belize Defense Force (BDF), the Belize Forest Department, Friends for Conservation and Development (FCD) and Ya’axché Conservation Trust. Over the course of the Program, the CFII will facilitate the construction of two new conservation posts to allow for increased enforcement presence in the area, as well as the creation of access roads to alleviate the problem of limited accessibility for patrolling and monitoring. To further assist with patrolling and monitoring, under the CFII, a total of six new vehicles at a value of BZ $450,146.30 were handed over to the Consortium in May of this year.

    PACT would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all consortium members, enforcement teams, and partner agencies for their service to this country through their hard work and their pledge to defend the biodiversity and integrity of these protected areas. Also, we would like to express our gratitude to the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry, the Environment and Sustainable Development for key technical support and contribution towards the success of this initiative.

    BZ $1.1 Million to Protected Areas Managers

    PACT REVEALS TWO NEW CATEGORIES OF FUNDING AND AWARDS BZ 1.1 MILLION TO PROTECTED AREAS MANAGERS

    Belize City, Belize. (Monday, 27 March. 2017) –Today the Trust held its Annual Investment Award Ceremony, handing over 1.1 million dollars under two new categories of funding – the single and multiple investment categories. Speaking to the progress made since last year’s Award Ceremony, Minister of State in the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Fisheries, the Environment, Sustainable Development and Immigration, Dr. Omar Figueroa informed that the new investment categories of funding “signals the shift in the way in which PACT [supports] proposals geared towards institutional and governance strengthening, financial sustainability and resource mobilization; and protected areas management plans”.

    The Ceremony also saw the new CEO and PACT Board Chair, Dr. Percival Cho – engage stakeholders echoing Hon. Minister Omar Figueroa’s optimism that PACT will continue to grow to meet the challenges of financing protected areas. Speaking specifically to the new investment categories of funding, Dr. Cho remarked that “the new investment angle complements the equally new opportunity for PACT to fund up to twenty percent of an organization’s budgeted staffing and office costs related to carrying out a project…thereby allowing [CBOs and NGOs] to invest a greater portion of their energies in fundraising initiatives to advance their work on the ground”.

    This year PACT awarded a total of five grants under its ‘single’ and ‘multiple’ categories. The ‘Single’ category carries a maximum funding envelope of BZ $100,000. This year, three single grants were awarded to the Sarteneja Alliance for Conservation and Development (SACD), Southern Environmental Association (SEA) and Programme for Belize. The ‘Multiple’ category awards funding to multiple recipients under one, singular project area with a funding envelope of BZ $400,000; recipients under this category are the Association of Protected Areas Management Organizations (APAMO) and Ya’axche Conservation Trust, alongside the Belize Audubon Society (BAS) and the Toledo Institute for Development and Environment (TIDE).

    The shift in this year’s investment cycle reflects a move towards a holistic and collaborative approach to protected areas management. The Protected Areas Conservation Trust (PACT) extends its warmest well wishes to all the investment award recipients and wishes them every success in the execution of their projects!

    KBA Contracts Awarded 2016

    The Government of Belize with the assistance of the World Bank is implementing the project entitled “Management and Protection of Key Biodiversity Areas in Belize (KBA)” with Grant funding from the Global Environment Facility “GEF” and has appointed the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, Forestry the Environment and Sustainable Development (MAFFESD) for the overall implementation of the Project with the fiduciary support provided by the Protected Areas Conservation Trust (PACT).

    The goal of the KBA project is to support and identify measures through which the government can create a balance between sustainable nature resource based growth while building climate change resilience. To achieve this aim, the project is divided into four development objectives: Forest Protection and Sustainable Forest Management; Promoting Effective Management of KBAs; Institutional Strengthening and Capacity Building for Enhanced Enforcement of Environmental Regulations; Project Management, Monitoring and Assessment.
