What is "People Managing Oceans"?

People Managing Oceans” is a Civil Society Action Programme (C-SAP) for the Sustainable Management of the shared living marine resources of the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems (CLME+ region). Its development was facilitated by the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) with the financial support of the UNDP/GEF CLME+ Project.

What's the story behind it?

Coastal and marine ecosystems and biodiversity are the basis for much of the region鈥檚 economic development and are also important for food security and resilience against climate change and natural hazards. 鈥淧eople Managing Oceans鈥 addresses unsustainable fishing, habitat degradation, and pollution as well as climate change. It also outlines priorities for strengthening civil society鈥檚 capacity and enabling mechanisms for participatory governance and management of oceans.

Developed by and for civil society, fisherfolk and community enterprises in the CLME+ region, 鈥淧eople Managing Oceans鈥 is a framework to guide their practical actions for a healthy marine environment that provides benefits and livelihoods for the well-being of the people of the region.聽

Published in English and聽Spanish by the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) in December 2018, 鈥淧eople Managing Oceans鈥 lays out an ambitious programme to unify and focus civil society action across the region to implement 8 strategies and 90 associated actions for management of key coastal and marine ecosystems: coral reefs, seagrass beds, mangroves, pelagic ecosystems, and continental shelf ecosystems. It also outlines priorities for strengthening civil society鈥檚 capacity and enabling mechanisms for participatory governance and management of oceans.聽聽

How does the C-SAP integrate with other initiatives?

鈥淧eople Managing Oceans鈥 supports the achievement of the long-term Vision of a healthy marine environment, and complements the implementation of the 10-year 鈥楽trategic Action Programme for the Sustainable Management of the Shared Living Marine Resources of the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems (CLME+ SAP)鈥, which was endorsed by governments of 26 countries and 8 overseas territories. Civil society, fisherfolk and community enterprises see themselves as important partners in implementing this key regional programme.聽

How was it created? Simple...Participation was the key!

鈥淧eople Managing Oceans鈥 was developed through a participatory process led by CANARI, a regional non-profit technical institute dedicated to facilitating and promoting participatory approaches to natural resource management.聽

CANARI conducted an in-depth stakeholder analysis to assess who were the key actors and what roles they were playing and could play in achieving our long-term vision of a healthy marine environment. Key stakeholders of civil society, fisherfolk and community enterprises from across the region then came together at a workshop in January 2018 in Trinidad and Tobago where they collectively analysed the strategies and actions in the government-endorsed 鈥楽trategic Action Programme鈥 previously endorsed by the countries from the region, and identified areas where civil society could contribute to, and complement its implementation.

Is 鈥淧eople Managing Oceans鈥 only for civil society ?

No. 鈥淧eople Managing Oceans鈥 is a guide for civil society, seeking to prioritise and focus its work, as well as donors, governments, researchers and other partners who provide financial and technical support to civil society. Joining forces will empower聽civil society to play an important role in the governance and management of our living marine resources in the CLME+ region.聽聽
