Conservation International (CI) will lay the groundwork for introducing conservation agreements in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Jamaica to provide incentives to communities for their support of conservation actions. The grant first supports a desk study to analyze the potential for conservation agreements, followed by workshops with local NGOs to identify potential sites. CI will undertake feasibility assessments and draft implementation and fundraising plans in collaboration with local partners for at least three sites.

Strategic Direction: 1 Improve protection and management of 45 priority key biodiversity areas
