Recommendations
1

Grant an extension until the end of December 2015 without additional costs to SNAP

2

Assistance from UNDP's Senior Management to strengthen ANAP.

3

While continuing some activities at the level of the Protected Areas (PA), it is recommended that SNAP focuses its activities on ANAP. In fact, SNAP only has a relative influence at the PAs level while the project's impacts could be very important if it were able to strengthen ANAP.

4

Initiate meetings of the Protected Areas Permanent Working Group as soon as possible and without waiting that the formalization process is more advanced. A meeting should be organized at least every 6 months.

5

Formalize the SNAP's basic concepts (definition of the different types of PAs) Creation of a website (with CNIGS technical assistance, for the construction, choice of content is left to ANAP's discretion) and make the following information available online : General description for each PA (starting with the 6 priority PAs) Inventory of the fauna and flora exisiting in each PA APs management plans APs business plans Description of ongoing projects undertaken in the PAs (and project documents) Methodologic tools for the PA network available online TOURIST ATTRACTIONS in each PA (particular interest demonstrated by the Ministry of Tourism, this could be a specific website, or be included in the Ministry of Tourism's website) Optional: publish a quarterly « newsletter » which will be made available on line. All actors involved in biodiversity protection should be invited to participate by publishing articles in the newsletter.

6

Develop a monitoring dashboard for national and local steering committees (containing information on meeting key points, membership, meeting dates and minutes)

7

Prioritize development of management plan for the priority National Parks

8
