CLME+ Strategic Action Programme (SAP) Experience Note: Engaging stakeholders in crafting a CLME+ Civil Society Action Programme and a sub-regional fishery management plan for Eastern Caribbean flyingfish
The University of the West Indies – Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (UWI/CERMES) has been working with the CLME+ Project partners to identify and share best/good practices and experiences from CLME+ SAP implementation within the region. Globally sharing lessons learned helps to improve the understanding, further implementation and uptake of the SAP by the CLME+ partnership and global LME Community of Practice (COP). This experience note focuses on the best practices and lessons learned from engaging civil society in one aspect of the implementation of the CLME+ SAP through a selected CLME+ Sub-Project.

CLME+ Strategic Action Programme (SAP) Experience Note: The ocean governance research and science agenda: supporting collaboration and engagement in the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR)
The various projects, programmes and initiatives under the CLME+ have brought together stakeholders from across the region and internationally to collaborate and engage in ocean governance research and science agenda-setting in the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR). The science research agenda was developed primarily to mitigate deleterious effects resulting from poor governance; and manage the unforeseen impacts on the marine ecosystems in the CLME+ region. To achieve this goal, the main focus is on developing mechanisms that integrate scientific information into the regional governance framework (RGF). There are several lessons that can be learned and best practices utilised from all the useful research that has been and continues to be done in the CLME+ region. This experience note highlights some of lessons learned and best practices observed from collaborative and engaging activities at the nexus of the region’s science-policy interface.

This policy brief examines the existing Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) and ratified National Determined Contributions (NDCs) with regard to the inclusion of specific efforts addressing blue carbon ecosystems, namely mangroves, tidal saltmarshes and seagrasses, as climate mitigation or adaptation solutions.

The Committee on Fisheries (COFI) at its Nineteenth Session in March 1991 called for the development of new concepts which would lead to responsible, sustained fisheries. Subsequently, the International Conference on Responsible Fishing, held in 1992 in Cancûn (Mexico) further requested FAO to prepare an international Code of Conduct to address these concerns.

The ocean makes up the Earth’s primary life support system, comprises 70 percent of our planet’s surface and is essential to human well-being and prosperity. Ocean ecosystems are threatened by unsustainable fishing, global change, habitat destruction, invasive species, and pollution – the combined effects of which are far more destructive than individual threats on their own.
Effectively addressing these threats requires comprehensive ocean management at large scales. Several models exist for achieving such large scale marine management, each of which tackles a broad range of issues with its own suite of inputs, objectives and methodologies. Often, more than one of these frameworks are applied to the same or similar geographies by different institutions.
In order to learn more about the different approaches to managing large-scale marine areas, their comparative merits, and the synergies and overlaps between them, CI commissioned this independent analysis of several widely applied models. Although the report was commissioned by CI, the views expressed in this report are those of the authors; they were charged with providing a critical examination of all the assessed approaches, including the Seascapes approach.

FROM VISION TO STRATEGIC ACTION
PROJECTS AND INITIATIVES
The CLME+ Hub is an initiative of the Secretariat of the CLME+ Interim Coordination Mechanism (ICM), in collaboration with the members of the CLME+ ICM and CLME+ Project Executive Group (PEG) and (prospective) Partner Organizations. Development of the Hub has benefited from the financial support of the UNDP/GEF Project: “Catalysing Implementation of the Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the Sustainable Management of shared Living Marine Resources in the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems” (CLME+ Project, 2015-2020). The CLME+ Project is executed by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) in close collaboration with a large number of global, regional and national-level partners.
