  • Description:
    "This gap analysis was done as part of a larger 'MPA Management Capacity Assessment' project being implemented for the Caribbean Marine Protected Area Management Network and Forum, CaMPAM. The project objectives are as follows: 1) To review existing information to identify key gaps in MPA management capacity information for countries and MPA sites in the Caribbean Region 2) To identify 5 year priority MPA management capacity needs for up to 3 demonstration MPA sites in each of nine Caribbean countries 3) To provide key information to CaMPAM about MPA management capacity needs in demonstration sites to guide programmatic planning and services such as training, funding, and technical support. To fulfill objective 1 of the project, the consultant team carried out a gap analysis of known capacity assessment reports in the region. This was done to inform the approach and methodology needed to complete objectives 2 and 3. As a first step in the gap analysis the consultant team compiled, reviewed, and prepared an initial gap analysis of existing MPA capacity documents. The purpose of the analysis was to look across regional information to identify gaps, to establish a baseline for this assessment and to understand if needs have changed over time. This analysis also initially aimed at gaining a regional perspective on which countries (and sites) have been most assessed for MPA management capacity, and which have had the least information collected. Additionally, the analysis reviewed which specific capacity components have been captured in previous assessments, and when and what tools have been used to collect the information, to understand the relevance (both in scope and time) of previous efforts to the CaMPAM project. The initial findings of the gap analysis were used to support the selection of countries to carry out the capacity assessment as well as to develop the appropriate methodology"--Introduction.
