The Declaration of the Day Protected Areas for all Latin America was pronounced at the closing of the regional event, on October 17, 2019, before 3123 participants from 58 countries. It is then consolidated, as the key support tool, for monitoring the recommendations of the Lima Declaration and other III CAPLAC agreements. The lack of collaborative and multi-sectoral work in the management of biodiversity and sustainability, but especially in protected areas and their areas of influence, is the main obstacle that our proposal aims to address. The LAC Protected Areas Celebration has the general communication objective of: Positioning the value of protected areas and other conservation measures for the well-being and sustainable development in Latin America and the Caribbean, as a tool for regional and local coordination.
