Terms of Reference for the Stakeholder Advisory Group (STAG) of the Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem (CLME) Project
A regional Stakeholder Advisory Group (STAG) will be established early in the CLME Project in order to provide input for Project implementation and in particular the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) and the Strategic Action Programme (SAP). The STAG will ensure that the CLME Project reflects the priorities and opinions of marine resource stakeholders throughout the Caribbean region. The STAG will enable the Project to be fully owned by the region by providing inputs and support to Project developments.

The SC will review and approve all technical documents, review budgets and financial reports and provide general strategic and implementation guidance to the Project Coordination Unit (PCU). It will meet once a year and all its decisions will be made on the basis of consensus.

Testing a Prototype Caribbean Regional Fund for Wastewater Management (CReW) Project Document
The Caribbean Regional Fund for Wastewater Management (CReW), established in 2011, seeks to provide sustainable financing for the wastewater sector, support policy and legislative reform, and foster regional dialogue and knowledge exchange among key stakeholders in the Wider Caribbean Region. The four year project, was funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) were the co-implementing agencies for the project. This project document contains an overv Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) iew of the context, objectives and implementation plan for this initiative.
The “dead zone” of the Mississippi Delta Map
The phenomenon of the “dead zone” results from an excess of nitrates and phosphorous in the Mississippi River. The latter stimulates the proliferation of algae which decomposes when dead, covering over the seabed. This decomposition absorbs all the available oxygen, preventing the presence of all other living matter. The phenomenon has been triggered by the increase in surface cultivation of maize for fuel energy production (more than 35 million hectares). The infatuation of the United States for agro-motor fuels has thus contributed to an increase in use of chemical fertilizers containing nitrates and phosphorous... According to some experts, this “dead zone” phenomenon will certainly exacerbate in the future by climate change, the increase in water temperature accelerating the decomposition of the algae and the redistribution of rainfall, modifying river flow rates.

The Caribbean Billﬁsh Management and Conservation Plan
This Caribbean Billfish Management and Conservation Plan has been prepared to reverse the trend of declining stocks of billfish species within the Western Central Atlantic Ocean and its adjacent seas, and to address unsustainable fishing practices. The objective of this Plan is to outline and guide the implementation of a suite of billfish management measures over a five-year period at regional and sub-regional scales to help secure the potential future benefits that can accrue from billfish stocks in the Caribbean.

The Case for IOCARIBE-GOOS: A Strategic Plan
Regional Ocean and Coastal Observing System in the wider Caribbean region including the Gulf of Mexico. This system will be a regional component of the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS). It will be managed by the IOC’s Regional Sub-commission for the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions (IOCARIBE), and will be called IOCARIBE-GOOS. The Strategic Plan was endorsed by the Member States of IOCARIBE meeting in their 7th session (Veracruz, 25 - 28 February 2002).
