Years of Implementation
Conanp’s Provicom program provides support to create and equip community watch committees in protected natural areas under federal jurisdiction and their areas of influence, as well as at so-called Priority Conservation Regions (Regiones Prioritarias para la Conservation—RPCs).
These committees perform preventive activities as a strategy to foster social involvement in oversight and monitoring activities, and act as an awareness-creating instrument to foster the conservation of ecosystems and their biodiversity. Their members are trained in community watch planning and operations, biological monitoring and the laws applicable to environmental offenses.
Amount of the Incentive
Varies. One project provided average P$15,000 per project
