The objective: a 5-year action plan and priority areas for biodiversity conservation identified
The expected outcomes of the BEST initiatives are the following :
- setting up a Caribbean hub for the BEST initiative that can centralise, exchange and build on existing or future projects on biodiversity conservation and sustainable use of ecosystem services
- developing a regional ecosystem profile for the Caribbean based on collected scientific data and on consultation with local or regional stakeholders and experts in order to identify key biodiversity areas
- contributing to the Caribbean BEST strategy where priority of actions and assessment of current investment in biodiversity will be identified in order to define niche for investment and establish a 5 years action plan to submit to the European Commission.
