“Belize has been on the map when it comes to the issue of conservation. As it is, we have more than thirty percent of our lands already in some form of protection. With this agreement, we expect that by 2026 we will have thirty percent of our oceans under some sort of protections. But, what is important with what we are doing today, is that this gives us now the opportunity not only to have what you call paper reserves, but the PFP gives an opportunity to countries, especially small countries like ours that has difficulties accessing funding, to be able to ensure that we can have funding in permanence, as what PFP stands for. For us in Belize, we are very excited about it.”
