The Science we Need for the Ocean We Want: The United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development (2021-2030)
On 5 December 2017, the United Nations declared that a Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development would be held from 2021 to 2030. This Decade will provide a common framework to ensure that ocean science can fully support countries to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Decade will provide a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to create a new foundation, across the science-policy interface, to strengthen the management of our oceans and coasts for the benefit of humanity.
The State of Biodiversity in The Caribbean Community – A Review of Progress Towards the Aichi Biodiversity Targets
The Report highlights achievements, good practices, success stories and lessons learnt that can be shared, as examples, among the countries in the Region, and with countries outside the Region. It also recognizes that we face challenges, including of resources and capacity, but also as a result of the impacts of climate change and the increased frequency of severe weather events.
The purpose of this study is to raise the awareness of decision makers regarding the economic dimensions of the crisis in the world’s marine capture fisheries.
This study estimated the difference between the potential and actual net economic benefits from global marine fisheries using 2004 as the base year. The estimate was made using a model that aggregated the world’s highly diverse fisheries into a single fishery. This made it possible to use the available global fisheries data such as production, value of production, and global fisheries profits as inputs to the model.

The primary objective of this study is to reinforce the messages of the 2009 publication and to catalyze calls for accelerating and scaling up the international effort aimed at addressing the global fisheries crisis. The analysis reveals economic losses of about $83 billion in 2012, compared with the optimal global maximum economic yield equilibrium. These sunken billions represent the potential annual benefits that could accrue to the sector following both major reform of fisheries governance and a period of years during which fish stocks would be allowed to recover to a higher, more sustainable, and more productive level. These stocks cannot be recovered immediately, even if ideal sector governance were somehow imposed overnight. Rather, the process of recovery implies large transition costs and long-term sector restructuring.

The Use And Design Of Rigths And Tenure Based Management Systems For Transboundary Stocks In The Caribbean
This document provides the findings and recommendations from a desk study carried out in support of the Caribbean Billfish Project. It includes an analysis of the motivating factors for rights based approaches in order to address the common pool fishery problems which dissipate rents. Human action depends on the fisheries management approaches followed. The study recognizes that it is a challenge to apply rights based approaches in the developing world. The author states that the answer is to secure rights to the fishery to end the race to fish and to put proper incentives in place to increase wealth and sustainability. The document also describes the characteristics of strong rights and several rights based approaches in commercial and recreational fisheries for billfish.

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.
