PACT Celebrates 25 Years of Supporting the Management of the Belize National Protected Areas System


June 6th, 2021 marks the 25th anniversary of the Protected Areas Conservation Trust (PACT). The Trust was operationalized as a statutory body in 1996 as Belize’s national financing mechanism for protected areas and it has directly invested over $34 Million in the national protected areas system in addition to varied indirect financial support. To mark this 25-year milestone in its institutional history, PACT will be undertaking a series of activities throughout our 25th year aimed at achieving fresh branding and audience sensitization, social impact, encouraging public involvement, and demonstrating partner appreciation.
Additionally, this year PACT will be diligently working on a new Strategic Plan and Conservation Investment Strategy for the next 3 to 5 years as well as a transitional support program in response to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on protected areas management. Our aim is to continue to advance our mission to effectively manage the Belize National Protected Areas System through strategic partnerships and high impact investments while also achieving our vision of becoming a trusted global leader in sustainable development and enhancing the quality of life of all Belizeans through funding and coordination of a resilient protected areas system.
PACT invites the public, community-based organizations, and established investment partners to join us in celebrating such a significant milestone by looking out for our planned activities which include:
• Fresh Branding and Website Re-design
• The 25 Years of PACT Podcast
• PACT Trivia Hour
• Environmental Club Guide for Secondary Schools
• National Parks Geocaches
• Unveiling of Conservation Investment Strategy and Bridge Financing
• PACT Partnership Framework Launch
