September 3, 1999 - A two-day strategic planning workshop organized by the National Conservation Authority NCA comes to end on Saturday. The workshop is being held at the Caribbees Hotel and brings together staff and other stakeholders of the NCA. The specific purpose of the exercise is to develop a common understanding of management and organizational issues, which the NCA should consider in its strategic planning process and to suggest preliminary directions for dealing with these issues.
During the opening of the workshop on Friday, Chairman of the NCA Board Perry Thomas said the Authority is charged with a broad mandate, one of which important component is to safeguard the tourism product.
Henry Charles General Manager of the NCA in his overview of the organization said the National Conservation Authority is expected to act as a catalyst in strengthening the collaborative arrangements among the various agencies involved in natural resource management, and develop a comprehensive policy on beach use and beach facilities, vending, coastal zone management, establishment of national packs and protected areas. The National Conservation Authority is also expected to make a significant contribution to the Nature Heritage Tourism Programme and establish and implement a national beautification programme.
The Parliamentary Secretary in the Ministry of Tourism, Civil Aviation and International Financial Services Hon. Menissa Rambally declared the workshop open. Hon. Rambally said the NCA must work in collaboration with communities, groups and organizations around the island, and see it self as a people oriented organization.
