This plan provides a framework for joint action that will build on the foundation established by the First Joint Plan of Action aimed at harmonizing and integrating the fisheries and aquaculture management efforts of the two sub-regions, eventually to be supported in the future by a common fisheries and aquaculture policy for the Caribbean Sea.

Shark sanctuaries are useful tools for coastal and island governments seeking to reduce shark mortality in their
waters. At least 63 million and as many as 273 million sharks are killed in commercial fisheries every year. Sanctuary designations typically prohibit the commercial fishing of all sharks, the retention of sharks caught as bycatch, and the possession, trade, and sale of sharks and shark products within a country’s full exclusive economic zone (EEZ). Some also ban fishing gear typically used to target sharks, such as wire leaders and shark lines. Because of the role that sharks play in maintaining ocean health, protecting them with sanctuaries provides ecosystem, environmental, cultural, and economic benefits.

The artisanal shrimp fishery in Guyana is important for livelihood and food security, involving around 300 vessels owned and crewed exclusively by Guyanese nationals. This fishery uses Chinese seines and operates in major river estuaries. It targets penaeid shrimp, but also retains some finfish and is known to discard a significant but undocumented quantity of smaller finfish bycatch. The lack of knowledge regarding the bycatch is a concern for fishery management and biodiversity conservation. In this study, we quantify for the first time the finfish bycatch discards through onboard observations (July—August 2016) of a single typical vessel operating in the Demerara estuary.

The Spiny Lobster is a transboundary species, which spends a year drifting in the ocean waters while in the larval stage, indicating that some countries are supplying larve to their neighbors or even farther, and that the harvest of one country affects the potential harvest of the neighboring countries.

Waste management is a major issue globally, and the situation in Small Island Developing States (SIDS) is no exception. The SIDS Waste Management Outlook has been developed as a follow-on to the Global Waste Management Outlook to provide an overview of the current challenges and opportunities for waste management in SIDS. The indings of the SIDS Waste Management Outlook can be applicable beyond SIDS and can be relevant to countries which have populated islands within their boundaries. Such islands number approximately 11,000 worldwide.

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.
