CANARI is facilitating the development of supporting regulations and an action plan for the Conservation and Environmental Management Act (CEMA) in Montserrat with the Department of Environment, Ministry of Agriculture, Trade, Lands, Housing and Environment. This activity is part of the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) Project on Climate Change Adaptation and Sustainable Land Management in the Eastern Caribbean (iLAND Resilience – Promoting a Climate for Change) funded by the European Union. This year-long regional project supports the strengthening of environmental frameworks in four countries.

Two national consultations were conducted to gain stakeholder input in June 2017 and June 2018 to draft six regulations on environmental approvals, forests and forest fires, protected areas, fauna and flora, noise and other forms of pollution, and an action plan that identifies priorities and a three-year implementation budget for operationalising CEMA. See the background paper and workshop report from June 2017.

Stakeholders are invited to further review and comment on these six draft regulations and draft action plan, which can be downloaded below.
