Gouyave Fishermen Cooperative Society Limited: Fisherfolk taking the lead in co-management of the Gouyave Marine Protected Area, Grenada 2019
This case study aims to enhance knowledge about innovations and best practices currently being utilised by civil society organisations (CSOs) and their partners in the Caribbean that can be applied to support conservation, restoration and sustainable use of coastal and marine resources in marine protected areas (MPAs) and marine managed areas (MMAs). It has been developed under the regional project ‘Powering Innovations in Civil Society and Enterprises for Sustainability in the Caribbean (PISCES) which is being funded by the European Union EuropeAid programme and is being implemented over a three-year period (2017 to 2020). PISCES is taking place in 10 countries: Antigua and Barbuda; The Bahamas; Dominica; Grenada; Haiti; Jamaica; Saint Kitts and Nevis; Saint Lucia; Saint Vincent and the Grenadines; and Trinidad and Tobago.
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.

The Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem and Adjacent Areas (CLME) Project has identified weak governance as a root cause of the problems facing these social ecological systems (SESs). Therefore, the CLME Project has a strong emphasis on assessing LMR governance systems and on proposing ways of strengthening them. This document outlines the approach to governance assessment that was used to assess a variety of SES situations in the CLME Project area as reflected in the CLME Case Studies and Pilot Projects. The methodology was adapted from the methodology developed for the GEF Transboundary Waters Assessment Programme (TWAP). This is based on a multilevel, policy-cycle-based Large Marine Ecosystem (LME) Governance Framework that incorporates and addresses the issues of scale, complexity and interaction inherent in most LMEs.
