The present UNDP/GEF CLME+ Project (GEF ID 5542; 2015-2019) is a 5-year project that specifically aims at supporting the implementation of this 10-year CLME+ SAP. However, as an ambitious and broad “umbrella” SAP, it is acknowledged that SAP implementation cannot be achieved through a single project or initiative. Rather, better articulation, coordination and collaboration among the wide array of ongoing and newly planned projects and initiatives will be required. The CLME+ project is uniquely positioned in this context to catalyse the implementation of the SAP, and to help achieving the required coordination and integration of efforts. This official project document offers a detailed overview of the CLME+ Project.

CLME+ Strategic Action Programme (SAP) Experience Note: Applying the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries (EAF) to the Caribbean Spiny Lobster Fishery in the CLME+ Region
The Central America Fisheries and Aquaculture Organization (OSPESCA), under the General Secretariat of the Central American Integration System (SICA) through a Memorandum of Agreement
(MoA) with the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) in support of the United Nations Development Programme/Global Environment Facility (UNDP/GEF) CLME+ Project, was tasked with the implementation of the Ecosystem Approach to Caribbean Spiny Lobster Fisheries (aka Ecolobster+) Sub Project. The aim of the Sub Project is to address the CLME+ SAP sub-strategy 4a “Improve the governance arrangements for the implementation of the ecosystem approach to spiny lobster fishing”. This experience note highlights the main outcomes, outputs and lessons learned from this Sub Project.

CLME+ Strategic Action Programme (SAP) Experience Note: Applying the Governance Effectiveness Assessment Framework (GEAF) indicators to the CLME+ SAP
The CLME+ SAP specifies the development of a comprehensive Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) plan to track progress towards achieving its objectives, and to facilitate adaptive management. The monitoring aspect of the M&E plan for the CLME+ SAP is based on the Governance Effectiveness Assessment Framework (GEAF) which has been used to develop indicators for monitoring governance within the region. An assessment of these indicators gives insight into needed improvements that can be applied across all categories of the GEAF framework and for the successful implementation of an ecosystem based approach to the sustainable management of the CLME+ region. This experience note highlights the lessons learned from applying the GEAF in the CLME+ region.

CLME+ Strategic Action Programme (SAP) Experience Note: Coordinating Mechanisms for Strengthening Integrated Ocean Governance in the Caribbean Region
Ocean governance in the Caribbean is comprised of a diversity of networks of actors serving various purposes and have competing and conflicting interests. The CLME+ SAP explicitly identifies weak governance as one of the main root causes of ongoing degradation of the marine environment. The first three strategies of the SAP focus on strengthening regional mechanisms for governance. Under the CLME+ Project two interim Coordination Mechanisms were created with a third long-term coordinating mechanism being negotiated at the time of writing. There have also been discussions on formalising a wide-ranging partnership for integrated governance. This experience note highlights the different regional coordination mechanisms created and proposed under the CLME+ SAP that can be viewed as best practices for strengthening ocean governance in the CLME+ region.

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 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.
