Blue Economy Scoping Study for Dominica

Following the devastating hurricane that struck the island of Dominica in 2017, the Government of Dominica is focusing on the development of a long-term strategy to become the world’s first Climate Resilient country. In this regard, the Government has signalled its desire to integrate the Blue Economy into future resilience building initiatives. The United Nations Development Programme is supporting them in this aspiration and is extending technical support to Dominica to explore options to integrate the blue economy into its broader resilience building activities. This report, prepared on behalf of UNDP, underpins this technical support and represents the first two of three deliverables under the UNDP programme of assistance, namely: a Stocktake; and a National Diagnostic Analysis. The purpose of these outputs is to provide both UNDP and the Government of Dominica with some understanding of the possible opportunities that the blue economy presents. They provide an overview of current context and opportunities, a technical analysis of impediments, and makes recommendations for ways forward.

Caribbean Billfish Project (CBP) Project Document

The objective of this Caribbean Billfish Project (CBP) is to develop business plans for one or more long-term pilot projects aimed at sustainable management and conservation of billfish within the Western Central Atlantic Ocean. The divergence in value between the commercial and recreational subsectors represents a significant ‘entry point’ and opportunity for conservation and value creation which this project aims to exploit. The completed business plans will incorporate the economic, technical and financial rationale and feasibility to attract investment involving private and public capital. The project also contribute significantly to regional capacity building, information sharing systems and management and conservation planning for billfish. The Executing Agency of this subproject is described as “WECAFC/FAO”.

Caribbean Sea Ecosystem Assessment

This assessment will attempt to contribute to the scientific basis of the decision-making framework in which policy and management decisions are taken and governance arrangements designed. The assessment will also establish a consolidated baseline of data and analysis relating to the condition of the Caribbean Sea, for use in periodic monitoring. It will also serve as an example of an approach to integrated assessment of ecosystems, and to inter-governmental/civic society/academic collaboration.

Caribbean Sea Large Marine Ecosystem – Sustainable Management of The Shared Marine Resources of The Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem and Adjacent Regions

The CLME project responds to the need cited by key decision-makers for attention to the management of shared marine resources in the Caribbean LME and adjacent regions and the call to provide mechanisms facilitating informed decision-making. Typically, the LME approach includes five modules that focus on different aspects of the ecosystem: (1) productivity, (2) fish and fisheries, (3) pollution and ecosystem health, (4) socio-economics, and (5) Governance.

Caribbean Spiny Lobster Larval Dispersal Patterns and Larval Retention Areas Map

Larval drift determines the source of recruitment to the fishery, and it is thought that maintaining the lobster population at a particular site may depend on larvae arriving from distant localities. The drift of larvae across political boundaries creates a strong link among the countries that share this transboundary resource.
