That question is answered through DCNA’s Management Success Report 2012.

A critical component of effective fundraising is the ability to demonstrate success and progress. For this reason DCNA has developed a detailed data collection and analysis system, based on the IUCN ‘management effectiveness framework’. This system not only captures baseline data but also acts as a tool for analysing the conservation success, institutional progress and management effectiveness at each of the protected area sites. As the project continues, valuable time series data are obtained every year as the capture sheets used to gain the information are updated. This time series information, established in 2004, will reflect changes in the priorities of the park management organisations as the time distribution between core management tasks changes as well as the emphasis on different projects and research being carried out.

The ability of the nature organisations to deal with the pressures they face comes down to their management capacity. The management success reports outline the context within which management is taking place, the elements of the management capacities of the organisations and the management activities carried out.

The information contained within this documents should be used by interested parties to raise awareness about the management activities taking place within the DCNA and the local, regional and international significance of the protected areas. If more information is required by the reader on any aspect of this report, the initial capture sheets for the island of interest should be referred prior to contacting the organisation responsible.

It should be noted that this report is part of a work in progress and some data may be unavailable.
