Case study on the Grande Riviere Nature Tour Guides Association, a local green‐blue enterprise in Trinidad and Tobago.
This case study reflects findings of a process using CANARI’s Local Green‐Blue Enterprise Radar1. This is
a tool to help local community small and micro‐enterprises assess how they are delivering ‘triple‐bottom
line’ benefits (economic, environmental and social) and good governance, and what are possible areas
for improvement. A focus group session is facilitated with members of the enterprise and they are
asked to assess how they think the business is doing based on a set of indicators. Each indicator is
discussed, and members agree on a ranking for each. The ranking for each indicator is placed on a
spider diagram, which visually represents a snapshot of how the enterprise is delivering benefits. The
rich discussion helps members of the enterprise work together to assess how they are doing and areas
where they want to grow.
Case study on the Indian Castle Fisherfolk Association – Enhancing and promoting the seamoss industry as a sustainable alternative livelihood of fisherfolk in the Gingerland Community, Nevis
The Indian Castle Fisherfolk Association (ICFFA) on the island of Nevis in St Kitts and Nevis was able to expand its seamoss farm – thereby providing a greater source of sustainable income to fisherfolk in the Gingerland community. thanks to a small grant of US$17,650 in April 2019.
ICFFA’s increased seamoss production was key to helping mitigate the financial impacts of the reduced catch presently experienced by fisherfolk in the Gingerland community due to climate change and other factors.

Case study on the Liamuiga Seamoss Group – Enhancing and promoting the seamoss industry in St. Kitts and Nevis to promote social empowerment and food and nutrition security
The Liamuiga Sea Moss Group (LSG) in Conaree Village, St. Kitts, was formed in 2017 by a group of agro-processors and fisherfolk involved in the production of seamoss products from seamoss grown in the wild. Seamoss farming was identified as great alternative livelihood to fishing, as a source of sustainable income in fishing communities.
The LSG used a small grant of US$35,170, provided in March 2019 by the Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) under the C-SAP project, to enhance and promote their small business, including expanding their seamoss plots and setting up their own small processing facility. CANARI also provided mentoring support to the LSG under the regional PISCES project.

Case Study On The Shared Stocks Of The Shrimp And Ground Fishery Of The Guianias – Brazil Shelf Stakeholder and Institutional Analysis CLME Case Study on shrimp and groundfish.Report No. 3
FAO implemented a “Case Study on Shared Stocks of the Shrimp and Groundfish Fishery of the Guianas-Brazil Shelf” (UNGF/INT/001/OPS) between July 2011 and February 2013, with six participating countries (Brazil, French Guiana (EU/France), Guyana, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela).
The purpose of the case study on Shared Stocks of the Shrimp and Groundfish Fishery of the Guianas-Brazil Shelf was to fill knowledge gaps, contribute to the final CLMETransboundary DiagnosticAnalysis and to the Strategic Action Programme (SAP), with priority actions to be undertaken to ensure the sustainability of the shrimp and groundfish fisheries.

The world’s oceans and coastal areas are an integral part of life on earth. They are the source of a variety of essential goods and services – including food, transport, oil, gas, and minerals, to name but a few, and also deliver vital ecosystem services such as climate regulation and oxygen production.
This publication – Catalysing Ocean Finance – demonstrates that, far from being an intractable problem, sustainable ocean management could become a successful legacy of today’s generation of decision-makers. It shows how the challenges facing the ocean stem from widely understood market and policy failures – failures which can be addressed through the application of appropriate mixes of market and policy instruments.

For over two decades, the countries, subregional and regional level intergovernmental organizations in the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR) have been engaged in an initiative to implement a regional governance approach for managing the shared living marine resources of the Caribbean Sea and adjacent regions. Given the inherent socio-economic and geopolitical complexity of the region, this approach has been recognized as essential to address the challenges associated with the interconnected nature of shared ecosystem goods and services upon which countries in the region depend. This paper uses a retrospective lens to shed light on the challenges confronting the region and its efforts to overcome them. It is based on the Large Marine Ecosystem Governance Framework developed specifically for the WCR in 2006 and characterized as “learning by doing.” Data were obtained for this study through desktop review of published literature documenting progress over the period 2001–2021 and insights requested from 15 key individual and institutional contributors involved in the initiative. While the lack of financial resources was an underpinning and cross-cutting issue, key constraints identified were categorized as institutional, capacity building, awareness raising, leadership, legal, political, social capital, or socio-cultural. They include national capacity to engage with regional level processes due to a variety of factors including funding, political, and institutional challenges of developing a regional coordination mechanism, engaging the broader ocean community to create the critical mass needed, the difficulty of mainstreaming ocean affairs into high level political and decision-making fora and the scarcity of local, national and regional technical and political champions. This paper advances understanding of the barriers to be overcome in highly complex socio-politically developing regions if regional ocean governance initiatives are to play the essential role identified in the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda, reaping the sustainable benefits of a blue economy.

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.
