Governance arrangements for marine ecosystems of the Wider Caribbean Region
The Regional Governance Framework (RGF) proposed in this report has evolved over the duration of the CLME Project, through interaction with regional stakeholder organizations. Much of the conceptual basis for the framework was developed and accepted by the countries and regional organizational that stage. What is presented here takes the concepts to the next stage of an actual framework addressing actual issues and identifying organizations and the roles that they would play in the framework. What is presented here is based on assessment and consultation with key partner organizations and is viewed as a consensus to be proposed to the countries for adoption rather than a set of options among which the regional organizations and countries must decide.
