Groundbreaking Partnership Signed to Support Environmental Protections in the Dominican Republic

On December 12th, 2016, in Santo Domingo, the Caribbean Biodiversity Fund (CBF) and El Fondo Nacional para el Medio Ambiente y los Recursos Naturales (Fondo MARENA) signed a ground-breaking Partnership Agreement, which will trigger new annual flows of funding to support environmental conservation projects in the Dominican Republic. This represents an important major step toward addressing the long-standing issue of lack of reliable and long-term funding to support environmental protection.
