Chapter 8. STAKEHOLDERS

Describe how the nominated site involves stakeholders and local communities in designation and management, and specify specific coordination measures or mechanisms currently in place


Stakeholders involvement Involvement Description of involvement Specific coordination measures Comments (if any)
Institutions yes There are several institutions that have a close working relationship with the park but their involvement with management of the Parks is minimal or nonexistent
Public yes The public informs the Park of any violations that occur that the staff is unaware of thereby helping the Foundation to better carry out their duties. The public is encouraged to approach staff members or to call the Visitor anytime. There is no coordination as such.
Decision-makers yes Government approaches the National Park Foundation for advice on certain issues and vice versa. The Island Government provides the Parks with a small subsidy in order that the work of managing the environment can be carried out. The Park provides the Government with annual reports, project reports and advice. There is no coordination as such. There is a good open working relationship with government.
Economic-sectors yes Close working relationship with the dive shops, fisheries and hotels on the bay front etc. Park organizes ad hoc workshops for these groups. Annual meetings, dive shops (and sometimes fishermen) report infractions to the Park.
Local communities no See public
Others no
