Protected Area Management Effectiveness

PAME Dashboard

Protected areas (PAs) are a key strategy for the conservation of natural values with associated ecosystem services and cultural values. But PAs need to be managed effectively in order to achieve their multiple goals and objectives. The evaluation of Protected Area Management Effectiveness (PAME) is therefore a critical element of adaptive PA management.

This PAME Module of the CPAG Resource & Information Hub (RIH) provides a one-stop shop for essential information and resources on PAME in the Caribbean. The module supports the national ministries and agencies, PA managers and staff, and others (e.g. donors and NGOs).

The module provides an overview of the most important PAME assessment tools and the many PAME assessments carried out in the Caribbean (e.g. which tools have been used where and when). The module also provides easy access to key PAME resources as well as PA management plans from the Caribbean countries. Registered users (when logged in) can contribute additional information and resources to the PAME Module.
