Policy Outcome:

The Clarendon Provisional Development Order is a written form of zoning codes to guide local planning actions within 9 local planning areas. Each parish in Jamaica has a Provisonal Development Order to address regions that have been identified as priority areas for growth and development to be done in a sustainable, economically and environmentally sound way. The plan recognizes the threat that climate change poses to food security through land conservation for agriculture within Clarendon. The order also supports the preservation of major fishing sites and livelihoods through proper land management policies. Anticipated outcomes of the policy are resiliency to climate change and disaster through physical infrastructure and sustainable management and use of resources, development of a healthy and educated population, creation of a strong economy built around agriculture, tourism, and manufacturing, and a transparent parish government.
