    Improving Forest and Protected Area Management in Trinidad and Tobago - GCP/TRI/003/GFF 2021
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Approximately 60 percent of the land area of Trinidad and Tobago is covered by forests and other wooded land. These areas are crucial to the health of the planet and to the livelihoods of the people who depend on the resources they provide. For these reasons, they have been designated as Protected Areas (PAs). The management of these PAs has been fragmentary in nature, owing to the fact that multiple laws have been established regarding their organization and maintenance. Pressure from various stakeholders has also been placed on PAs, posing a threat to biodiversity and causing degradation. The wildlife population has declined in many of these areas, putting species in both terrestrial and nearby marine ecosystems at risk. This project was designed to build upon existing efforts to prevent biodiversity loss and to make the management of PAs in Trinidad and Tobago more effective. The development of a cohesive PA system and the creation of a related funding mechanism were central goals of the project.

    In 2010, the Office of Evaluation (OED) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) began to independently assess the impact of various FAO programmes within member countries. OED reports directly to the Director General, as well as the FAO Council through the Programme Committee. In November 2014, the Programme Committee endorsed the selection of a group of Caribbean countries and Guyana for evaluation in 2015, including Trinidad and Tobago. The basis of the evaluation is the Country Programme Framework (CPF) which describes the scope of the assistance that FAO provides to a country. The Trinidad and Tobago evaluation covered the period of 2010-2015. The evaluation reviewed the work of FAO in Trinidad and Tobago, including its investments, technical assistance and collaboration with national and regional partners. The main aim of the evaluation is to inform the development of the new CPF cycle (beginning in mid-2015) for Trinidad and Tobago, as well as each of the targeted countries. The evaluation’s findings and recommendations will help to better orient FAO’s programme in the next programme cycle, and to make it more relevant to the priorities of the concerned governments. The evaluation also assessed the strategic relevance of FAO’s programmes in the national context, and of the initiatives implemented within the country. Furthermore, in the context of aid effectiveness, and of the international community’s concern over a country’s ownership of th e development process, the evaluation aimed to emphasize the involvement of national partners in the evaluation process. In particular, it is anticipated that the concerned governments will ensure the appropriation of the evaluation results by the relevant national institutions, and promote their use at the national level.

    This report presents the main findings from the terminal evaluation of the project “Improving forest and protected area management in Trinidad and Tobago”. The project, funded by GEF and implemented by FAO, sought to conserve globally important biodiversity and ecosystems in Trinidad and Tobago. The evaluation focuses on results achieved, it identifies the impact of the project, the sustainability of project outcomes and the degree of achievement of the outcomes in the long-term. It was also conducted to analyse achievements and challenges of the project in meeting stated objectives, identify best practices and lessons learned, and promote adaptive learning for future projects and programming.
