Set up a coherent site management plan
Support the creation of a GIS (Geographic information system)
The French Ministry for Environment (Ministère de l’Aménagement du Territoire et de l’Environnement) is responsible for conservation of biological diversity . It can initiate and/or support long term conservation tools such as a state botanical conservatory.
The objective of the feasibility study for such an institution in NC is to assess present requirements for improving knowledge and conservation of the NC dry forest wild flora. The study will also specify possible steps needed for setting up a conservatory which will answer these needs.
The feasibility study could be implemented
in three parts.
Based on these factors a number of possible scenarios will be presented to improve coherence and general understanding of conservation measures for the NC flora. It will be possible to apply for approval of a single national botanical conservatory through a joint working partnership on the project.

Set up a rational site management plan
For each sclerophyll forest plot, a development and management plan adapted to the specific constraints linked to its conservation must be set up :
The development plans must be sustained
by exploiting the knowledge acquired by scientists but also by objective
analyses of the situation by means of mapping.
Support the creation of a GIS (Geographic Information System)
Rare and threatened ecosystem organisms and important cultural, economical or ecological special features must be described and located. It must be ascertained that government agencies work toward the protection of representative entities of these phenomena in their natural environment.
involves an analysis of the present state in terms of means (baseline
data and tools):
of biodiversity in space
of threats in space
