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 Large Marine Ecosystem (CLME) Project – Final Report of The Project Concept/TDA Synthesis Workshop Knutsford Court Hotel, Kingston, Jamaica February 28 – March 3, 2007
The main purpose of the CLME Project Concept/TDA Synthesis Technical Workshop was to develop the technical components of the draft Full-Sized Project (FSP) document for review and endorsement by the CLME Steering Committee and other project partners and the subsequent submission to the GEF.
Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem Project Brief
This Document is makes a brief description of The Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem and Adjacent Regions (CLME). This is Project is a 4 year Global Environment Facility (GEF) intervention, which officially started in May 2009. The Project Implementing Agency is the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in partnership with IOC of UNESCO. The Executing Agency is the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS). The project is administered from a small Project Coordination Unit (CLME PCU) located in the offices of IOCARIBE, IOC of UNESCO, in Cartagena, Colombia. Project partners include 23 GEF-eligible countries, 2 associated countries and a considerable number of organizations from the region. The CLME Project assists countries of the wider Caribbean to improve the regional governance & management of shared Living Marine Resources (sLMR) - most of which are considered to be fully or over exploited. In order to do so, the project follows the standard GEF approach under the “International Waters” Focal Area, which consists of the preparation, and regional and national-level endorsement, of a Strategic Action Programme (SAP).
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.
CARSEA Millenium Ecosystem Assessment Caribbean – Executive Summary
This project seeks to make use of the many but disparate research results that have accumulated on various aspects of the forces that are impacting the Caribbean Sea and the effects of those driving forces on the capacity of the ecosystem and on human well-being. 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.
Case Study on Shrimp and Groundfish Fishery: Guyana
This is the report of the national consultation organized by the Ministry of Agriculture of Guyana, in collaboration with FAO and the Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism (CRFM), held in Georgetown, Guyana, on 18 September 2012. The report contains a summary of the discussions held during the national consultation, the results of a scoping exercise that was carried out by the participants, the baseline report that was discussed and agreed upon by the stakeholders, as well as the results of the preliminary meetings that were held prior to the national consultation.
Catalysing Ocean Finance – Volume I Transforming Markets to Restore and Protect the Global Ocean
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.
