By BBN Staff: The Marine Conservation and Climate Change Adaptation Project (MCCAP) in the coastal areas of Belize is being implemented by the Ministry of Forestry, Fisheries and Sustainable Development (MFFSD) with fiduciary management assistance from the Protected Areas Conservation Trust (PACT) as the National Implementing Entity (NIE) and the World Bank as Multilateral Implementing Entity (MIE).

The objective of MCCAP is to implement a priority ecosystem-based marine conservation and climate adaptation measures to strengthen the climate resilience of the Belize Barrier Reef System and its productive marine resources.

Specifically, the project will support, (i) improvement of the reef’s protection regime including an expansion and enforcement of the Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and Replenishment (no-take) Zones in strategically selected locations to strengthen climate resilience, (ii) promotion of sustainable alternative livelihoods for affected users of the reef, and (iii) building local capacity and raising awareness regarding the overall health of the reef ecosystem and the climate resilience of coral reefs.

The project has four components:
· Component 1: Improving the protection regime of marine and coastal ecosystems;
· Component 2: Promotion of viable alternative livelihoods for affected users of the reef;
· Component 3: Raising awareness and building local capacity;
· Component 4: Project Management
