Group Description

The list is intended to provide a forum for the timely exchange of information, expertise and experience, and to receive feedback on IOCARIBE's programmes and projects among IOCARIBE country focal points, project leaders and participants. It is hoped that this list will stimulate Member States to greater participation in the work of the Sub-Commission.

Specifically, the group is also intended to provide a forum for general announcements, information dissemination and informal discussion about the Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem project. This e-mail group and its associated web site are NOT official publications of the UN system or its contractors.

The CLME Project focuses on assisting Caribbean countries to improve the management of their shared living marine resources. A preliminary Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) identified three priority transboundary problems that affect the CLME:
o -- unsustainable exploitation of fish and other living resources,
o -- habitat degradation and community modification, and
o -- pollution.
The analysis found weak governance to be the major factor responsible for these problems.

The final TDA will serve as the science basis for development of an agreed program of interventions including fishery reforms, conservation measures and pollution control.

A Strategic Action Programme (SAP) with a shared vision for the CLME will be developed, and required priority interventions, reforms and investments agreed to. Spiny lobster and reef fish pilot projects as well as focussed activities on large pelagics, flyingfish and shrimp and groundfish resources will trial governance models at the local, national and sub-regional levels.
