Conservation Investment Plan for Sango Bay
This Conservation Investment Plan (CIP) brings together the needs and priorities of different sectors, organizations, and interest groups. It presents an integrated set of activities, united under the common goal of ecosystem conservation and sustainable use in support of effective, equitable, and sustainable economic growth in Sango Bay.
This document targets potential donors and investors in ecosystem conservation. It has three main purposes. First, it offers a value proposition, outlining the economic returns to investing in biodiversity and ecosystem conservation and sustainable use in Sango Bay. Second, it outlines a strategic plan to identify and integrate the most critical conservation funding priorities. Finally, the CIP serves as a marketing tool, seeking to mobilize new conservation funding flows.
The CIP harmonizes and brings together the various conservation strategies and plans developed for the Sango Bay landscape. Building on the considerable body of work in progress in the area, it picks up those activities that currently remain unfunded and structures them into coherent, consolidated, costed sets of mutually reinforcing projects. The aim is to leverage the additional resources required to meet these financial shortfalls.
