Conservation Action Plan
"Between December 2008 and January of 2009, representatives from the Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ), Coastal Resource Management (CRM), the Division of Fish and Wildlife (DFW), the Mariana Islands Nature Alliance (MINA), as well as other stakeholders came together with facilitators from The Nature Conservancy (TNC) to complete the Conservation Action Planning (CAP) process for Laolao Bay, with the aim of developing a comprehensive management plan for the watershed. Funded by the CNMI Coral Reef Initiative, the entire process comprised of a three-part workshop series. A first workshop was held in the CNMI to review the tool and develop initial parts of the management plan. The second workshop brought together all CAP teams from around Micronesia to share their initial plans at a regional workshop in Chuuk to obtain feedback from other teams and resource experts. The final workshop was held to finalize the CAP outputs and to develop this management plan."
