Protected areas are the foundation for the conservation of biodiversity, which in turn supports life. They benefit nations with their uncompromised ecosystems services, such as freshwater production by watershed environments.
The Bahamas Protected Areas Fund’s (BPAF’s) mission is to ensure a sustainable financial base for the effective management of the Bahamas National Protected Areas System and for conservation activities that protect the future and productivity of our national resources.
As at 31 December 2022, the BPAF has financed 21 projects in areas related to Beach, Mangrove and Coral Reef Restoration; building climate resilience; energy resilience through solar installation and supporting projects that restore ecosystem health and resilience at local sites. To date, the BPAF has attracted funding from the Caribbean Biodiversity Fund (CBF) and other local partners.
