The Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) was adopted by the Narragansett Bay Estuary Program in 2012. This Plan was developed with the assistance of numerous federal, state, and local government agencies, universities, and nonprofit environmental groups. The first Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan for Narragansett Bay was adopted in 1992.
Each year the program staff, in partnership with the Management Committee, develops a mission driven work plan to implement the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan.
The Narragansett Bay Estuary Program is guided by the goals of the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan to:
1) Protect and restore clean water
2) Manage land for conservation and community
3) Protect and restore fish, wildlife, and habitats, and
4) Manage climate change impacts to human and natural systems
