Activities The National Environment Centre (NEC) was funded as part of the DFID/TCIG Project and now falls under DECR’s remit. It is a multifaceted building located in the Bight in Providenciales. The building was constructed with the intention of providing the TCI with a centre for all environmental information and to provide attractions for visitors and residents to learn about the protected areas system. The building was consequently designed with three main functions in mind:
* To provide an environmental information center for the public with exhibits, classroom/conference facilities and gift shop;
* To provide offices for the staff of the Protected Areas Department, including laboratory facilities; and
* To provide some office space for the National Trust which will manage the public education elements of the NEC.
