A Guide to Establishing a Program Compliance and Enforcement Plan

A Guide to Establishing a Program Compliance and Enforcement Plan. Pacific Islands Managed and Protected Areas Community (PIMPAC) document: Conservation Enforcement Training

This document is one of a series of practical guides designed to assist marine conservation programs and practitioners in planning, building, and implementing effective conservation compliance and enforcement action.

Although this guide can be completed independently, it is best to work within a team that includes those who are familiar with local customs, rules and regulations, legal contexts, and existing resource management programs in order to ensure that the plan is as realistic and accurate as possible.

The document is very clearly laid out and relatively simple to complete provided that there are personnel involved who have the necessary knowledge and experience. It would be useful for conservation enforcement officers who are new to the job or are developing/revising procedures.
