A shared outlook for the future
The new ecological, social, political and legal scenario today is far from the scenario that dominated in Galapagos in 1996, when its predecessor was published. There have also been important conceptual and methodological advances in modern management of protected natural areas.
The PM has a timeless character, being a living document that promotes an "adaptive management" of the protected area, backed by a Monitoring and Evaluation System based on performance and impact indicators, which allow for adjustments in the logical framework for response to changes that may occur during and as a result of its implementation.
The management plan is finalized with a comprehensive proposal for implementation and development, graphically detailing the organizational structure and the various stages and responsibilities for the proper implementation of the Management Programs through annual operational plans of the institution. The document also includes an analysis of current and potential funding available to the Directorate of the Galapagos National Park and other institutions of the Province to enable the development of the Plan.
