European Overseas Regional Ecosystem Profile – Caribbean
This ecosystem profile elaborated in a participatory approach with local and regional stakeholders offers a wide overview of the European Overseas territories in the Caribbean under the European BEST Initiative. This regional ecosystem profile contains an analysis on the biological importance of the Caribbean region, a complete review on the current situation of the region’s biodiversity, habitats and their threats based on the most recent scientific data and observation and presents them in the socio-economic and political context. To achieve these objective knowledge hubs were established in the 7 EU Overseas regions to identify key biodiversity areas (KBAs). Each ecosystem profile also includes an analysis of current conservation activities and relevant investments in the region.
