Strategic Plan


The Environmental Foundation of Jamaica (EFJ) was incorporated in November 1992 and began operations in 1993. Twenty three years after it started operations the EFJ merged with Jamaica Protected Areas Trust / Forest Conservation Fund, which was operationalized in 2004. The successful merger of the two organisations is the underlying base of the Strategic Plan 2017 – 2020. 


This Strategic Plan is centred on three main pillars:

  •   Influencing policy, capacity building and stakeholders’ sustainability
  •  Fundraising, sustainability and public awareness
  •   Continued Streamlining of operational activities

These focal areas have all been linked to some of the Vision 2030 goals advocated by the Government of Jamaica.


In deciding on these three areas a careful review was done of the last Strategic Plan (2013 – 2015) and the factors that influenced the areas that were successfully (or at least partially) implemented and those that were not implemented. Going forward three key inputs in the matrix will be addressed these being (i) addressing the Human Resource needs (ii) a Fundraising Plan  developed and (iii) adequate resources pledged for the successful implementation of all activities.

The Strategic Plan 2017 - 2020 will be a living document and will be posted here after final amendments.
