Resumen Ejecutivo – Las Aguas Residuales: el recurso desaprovechado – Informe Mundial sobre el desarollo de los recursos Hidricos de las Naciones Unidas 2017
La mayoría de las actividades humanas que emplean agua producen aguas residuales. A medida que aumenta la demanda total de agua, la cantidad de aguas residuales producidas y la carga contaminante total de las mismas aumentan continuamente en el mundo entero.
En todos los países, salvo en los más desarrollados, la gran mayoría de las aguas residuales se vierte directamente en el medio ambiente sin tratamiento adecuado, con consecuencias perjudiciales para la salud humana, la productividad económica, la calidad de los recursos ambientales de agua dulce y los ecosistemas.
Latin America and the Caribbean does not have the infrastructure it needs or deserves given its income level. Infrastructure also falls short of what is needed to advance social integration and achieve higher growth and prosperity. Moreover, the region’s infrastructure does not correspond to the aspirations of its growing middle class.
This report has one main message: Latin America can dramatically narrow its infrastructure service gap by spending efficiently on the right things.

Review of the Access to, Availability of, and Organizational Readiness for Uptake of Funding for the Wastewater Sector in Selected Participating Countries
The Caribbean Regional Fund for Wastewater Management (CReW) Project aims to address some of the critical issues that Caribbean countries face in managing wastewater treatment systems. CReW has funded pilot projects in four of the nine participating Caribbean countries. An objective of these pilot projects is to determine an appropriate strategy for helping participating countries improve the management of wastewater treatment systems. The resulting strategy could be applied to the remaining participating countries, as part of a possible second phase of the CReW Project.

Saint Lucia National Trust (SLNT) documentary: Livelihoods within the Pointe Sable Environmental Protection Area
The Saint Lucia National Trust (SLNT) has produced a video documentary on livelihoods in the Ma Kote Area and the Point Sable Environmental Protection Area
The SLNT produced this video documentary highlighting the importance of protecting their coastlines as well as the symbiotic relationship between the mangroves and the persons working within the Point Sable Environmental Protection Area (PSEPA).
Interviews with two entrepreneurs who operate apiaries, seamoss farms and eco tours in the Ma Kote and PSEPA area feature the threats to their livelihoods and how they propose to overcome these threats.
The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) provided support to SLNT on the development of the video documentary under the regional PISCES project on coastal and marine ecosystem conservation and sustainable livelihoods.

This report is intended to identify priority research topics and information gaps from the perspective of decisionmakers. Ultimately, the goal is that this information will be useful for identifying those areas of research that provides the greatest value in developing effective and implementable policy. A hierarchical approach was employed to develop research topics. First, specific themes were identified that encompass a wide range of activities. These themes go beyond the focus of many research agendas in that they do not deal solely with the natural sciences; other themes were considered that are needed for effective policy development and implementation (e.g., communications, governance, economics). The themes are further subdivided into goals. The research topics fall within the goals. This provided a holistic approach that addresses the gaps in information from the wide range of activities that decision-makers must consider. The final version will be uploaded accordingly.

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.
