The Sapodilla Cayes Marine Reserve: Community Co-management Support Through Capacity Building, Communications and Outreach
During the community consultations carried out with the GEF/SGP planning grant it was observed that community members had little knowledge of the SCMR, both in terms of conservation and management. Communities requested greater contact and follow up by TASTE, and also simple presentation of environmental issues through communication and outreach materials. There was complete support for the GEF/SGP project activities proposed by TASTE/SCMR.

• To establish and improve organizational infrastructure.
