On January 10, 2020, Jean Wiener, Director of the Fondation pour la Protection de la Biodiversité Marine (FoProBiM), signed Haiti’s first ever co-management agreement with the National Protected Areas Agency (ANAP). The agreement will ensure FoProBiM’s continued collaboration with ANAP in activities related to all of Haiti’s Marine Protected Areas, and of the 3Bays MPA in particular. It will allow the two institutions to coordinate actions to more efficiently monitor, manage, and protect Haiti’s coastal and marine resources.

The agreement formalises current and future collaborative activities between the two institutions.  It combines FoProBiM’s on-the-ground expertise with ANAPs management responsibilities for Haiti’s MPAs.  The agreement runs for five years and particularly targets the activities identified in the 3Bays MPA management plan, including; strengthening of governmental agencies, development of educational activities, and establishment of stronger law enforcement procedures.
