Jamaica officially joins the Caribbean Biological Corridor Initiative

Jamaica has officially joined the Caribbean Biological Corridor Initiative (CBCI).


The Corridor Initiative, which began in 2007 with Cuba, Haiti and the Dominican Republic, aims to improve the long-term conservation of biodiversity based on ecosystem connectivity across countries.


Speaking on the initiative in the Senate yesterday (June 17), Minister with Responsibility for the Environment, Matthew Samuda noted that Jamaica’s membership will allow it to work with other Member States to facilitate the conservation of terrestrial and marine biodiversity in the Caribbean.
