Conservation Strategies

Based on the identified critical threats, the MPCT had developed 20 relevant conservation strategies for FMU 10 (SFD 2008a). These strategies were the broad action paths necessary to abate critical threats and enhance the viability of conservation targets. These strategies had two broad objectives as follows (TNC 2001):
  • Threat abatement: These strategies would eliminate active sources of stress thereby reducing subsequent stress in the conserving the targets and increasing their conservation viability.
  • Ecological Management and Restoration: These strategies would directly eliminate stress affecting the targets and thereby enhancing the viability of conserving these targets.
 
The chosen strategies, therefore, were conservation activities deployed to abate on-going sources of stress (threat abatement) and persistent historical stresses (restoration). This step involved setting objectives, selecting strategic actions, and implementing an action plan for the conservation area (TNC 2003). In selecting the 20 conservation strategies, the MPCT had hoped they would fulfil the objectives of either abating or eliminating the conservation threats in FMU 10. There are 12 potential strategies were selected upon revision of the Conservation Area Management Plan (CAMP 2013-2022). These strategies were further assessed to determine the respective benefit -feasibility - cost rank. The 7 highest priority denoted as rank 1 would give the highest impact in reducing the threats and would relatively easy to implement that would also incur high an reasonable cost. The rest ranked as 2 and 3 would be the second and third priority respectively. The assessment of the revised conservation strategies is as indicated in table 3.
