Protected areas / SSCC

The southern part of Suriname is almost uninhabited and most pristine area of our country. A plan has been developed with partners to support the co-management of the area with the Indigenous People present there. It is called the South Suriname Conservation Corridor (SSCC) project. This project is to collaborate to support establishment and sustainable management of a high value conservation corridor in South Suriname that would secure a significant proportion of Suriname's freshwater resources and other renewable natural capital including tropical forests, biodiversity and the ecosystem services these resources provide. Another part of that collaboration is for the development of a mechanism to support the economic sustainability of these efforts.
