Making the Case for Increasing Public and Private Investments in Wastewater Treatment: The Importance of Integrating Effects on Natural Capital
Untreated wastewater is the number one direct source of pollution to Caribbean marine ecosystems (CEP 2015). The principle motivation of governments and multilateral organizations to invest in wastewater treatment is often the protection of human health. While a critically important objective, this fails to fully recognize and protect key ecosystem services that flow from natural capital in the Caribbean (Exhibit 1). Natural capital such as nursery habitat for fish and safe water for swimming are at risk from the discharge of untreated domestic and industrial wastewater pollution, which, in turn, threatens the commercial fishery and tourism industries and elevates health care costs. By degrading the environment, ecosystem services that are critically important to the economic viability of Caribbean countries are compromised.

Management and Conservation of Reef Biodiversity and Reef Fisheries Pilot Project: Governance assessment for Pedro Bank, Jamaica
The purpose of the CLME pilot projects and case studies is to explore and understand various key parts of the framework in a ‘learning by doing’ mode. They will explore how the approach of developing functionality of policy cycles and linkages in various parts of the framework could lead to improved transboundary LMR governance in the WCR. These CLME Project components have been designed to encompass the full range of transboundary LMR situations with emphasis on different level of the framework and different geographical regions of the WCR. The governance assessment of these pilots and case studies is being approached through a common methodology. The Case Study for the Pedro Bank, Jamaica, addressed in this report is one such component.

Management and Conservation of the Reef Biodiversity and Its Associated Fisheries in the RB Seaflower CLME Pilot Project Executed by CORALINA
The current report presents the CLME pilot project outputs achieved by CORALINA and its local partners as contemplated in the activity named “Strengthen ecosystem-based management”. There were three main project outputs expected to be completed, which were achieved and exceeded. These successful results are expected to generate scientific information needed to improve integrated resource management, better value ecosystem services and goods, thus applying holistic criteria, and not focusing on single species.

Management and Conservation of the Reef Biodiversity and Its Associated Fisheries in the RB Seaflower, 2011 – 2012 Educational Component Achievements, CORALINA
The current report presents the CLME pilot project outputs achieved by CORALINA and its local partners as contemplated in the activity named “Public awareness, education, and outreach”. There were four main project outputs expected to be completed, and we are proud to report how CORALINA exceeded them as described below. This pilot focused its educational activities on key species that were both, identified important for the evaluation Seaflower Marine Protected Area (MPA) performance and important as fisheries stocks.

The fishery is currently part of a Fisheries Improvement Project (FIP) and management performance is measured against the Marine Stewardship Council’s Standard. This document was created to fulfill management performance review requirements and has undergone an external review, a review by the Bahamas Spiny Lobster Working Group and the Department of Marine Resources. The Department of Marine Resources is ultimately responsible for the contents of this document.

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.
