File Ridge to Reef Watershed Project: Strategic Plan for Sustainable Development of the Great River Watershed by Jean Brennan — last modified Jan 10, 2013 10:57 AM
Prepared for the: Government of Jamaica’s National Environment and Planning Agency and the U.S. Agency for International Development Submitted by: ARD, Inc., on September 30, 2003. Plan formulated by: Lloyd A. Donaldson Consulting Hydrogeologist and James Schweithelm, PhD, Senior Associate, ARD, Inc. PURPOSE OF THE STRATEGIC PLAN: The Strategic Plan for Sustainable Development of the Great River Watershed (hereafter referred to as “the Plan”) is intended to provide a comprehensive framework to guide the actions of many stakeholders to produce outcomes that contribute to achieving three integrated watershed management (WM) goals for the Great River Watershed (GRW).1 The Plan covers a five-year period (Jan. 2004–Dec. 2008). The Plan2 is intended to be a catalyst for building a sense of shared purpose among the residents, landowners, community organizations, Parish governments, and state agencies that have a role in its implementation. The Plan provides a “road map” to develop sustainable watershed management institutions and activities that will survive the transition from support by the USAID-funded Ridge to Reef Watershed (R2RW) Project to routine government programming. The transition road map builds on R2RW to achieve sustainability by internalizing watershed stewardship into attitudes and behavior of residents as well as the procedures and institutional culture of state agencies. The Plan provides a general description of baseline conditions of the GRW’s natural and human environments as a starting point for further data collection and monitoring. The Plan describes the environmental and economic value of the GRW, identifies problems and issues requiring attention, and proposes actions to address them within the framework of the Action Plan for the Great River Watershed (Section 5.0). Tasks undertaken to implement these actions are to be planned in detail in the annual work plans of state agencies and/or the Great River Watershed Management Committee (GRWMC).

File Castillo San Lorenzo, Panama: Concepts for Interpretation and Site Planning by Portal Web Editor — last modified May 21, 2013 12:21 AM
Castillo San Lorenzo (CSL) is a site of global importance. It was one of the original UNESCO World Heritage sites, designated in 1980. Its discovery as a tourism treasure has just begun. But it is a fragile resource, one that must be protected and preserved. A growing tourism industry must be balanced with site preservation. Careful planning is needed to accomplish this goal. This report provides a vision for tourism development for CSL and a framework to achieve that vision. It is not intended to be in-depth management planning, but rather to serve as an intermediate step and generate thinking for master planning. It contains: • a vision of what CSL can become as a tourism goal • suggested immediate action items addressing interpretation and site planning issues for short term management of the site • a description of the master planning process for long range management
