The project is intended to consolidate the work started by BIOPAMA-1 with emphasis in enhancing the work of the existing Regional Observatories (ROs), establishing 2 new ROs for West Africa and Eastern Africa, as well as to keep developing the capacity of key PAs agencies and managers in ACP countries. It includes a Grant Making Facility as a new element when compared to BIOPAMA-1. Its overall objective is: "To contribute to improving the long-term conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and natural resources in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific regions in protected areas and surrounding communities through better use and monitoring of information and capacity development on management and governance".

Overall objective 
To contribute to improving the long-term conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and natural resources in Africa, Caribbean and Pacific regions in protected areas and surrounding communities through better use and monitoring of information and capacity development on management and governance.
 
Specific Objective 1(SO1) 
(Consolidation of RRIS)
Reference Information Systems for biodiversity and protected areas management are maintained and enhanced at Global, ACP and Regional Levels, combining best-available data with query, analysis and reporting functions tailored to the specific needs of priority conservation landscapes in ACP countries. This will also contribute to better informed climate change mitigation and adaptation actions.

Specific Objective 2 (SO2) 
(Operationalization and institutionalisation of ROs)
The Regional Observatories (ROs), mandated by regional institutions and hosting the RRIS, are used by stakeholders to improve planning and decision-making for biodiversity conservation and sustainable natural resource management and governance.
 
Specific Objective 3 (SO3) 
(Site-based actions)
On the basis of management and governance priorities, planning and implementation of biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services and sustainable natural resource management activities are strengthened through targeted actions in priority conservation landscapes in insular (including SIDS islands countries) and continental territories in the ACP region. Co-benefits on human well-being as well as on mitigation and adaptation actions will be explicitly sought whenever possible.
