The CLME+ Project: An initiative to save the sea and enhance livehoods

What is it?
The CLME+ Project is a 5-year project (2015-2020) implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and co-financed by the Global Environment Facility (GEF).
It assists participating countries from two large marine ecosystems (LMEs) in improving the management of their shared Living Marine Resources through an Ecosystem-Based Management approach:
the Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem
the North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem
The combination of those two LMEs is referred to as the CLME+ region, bordered by over 35 States and Territories: the Caribbean & North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems. This vast marine area (4.4 million km2) is a major contributor to regional economic development and is key to many globally relevant ecological processes.

What is the CLME+ Region?

The CLME+ region is regarded as one of the most geopolitically diverse and complex sets of LMEs in the world. The culturally diverse countries and territories that border this maritime area range from among the largest (e.g. Brazil, USA) to among the smallest (e.g. Barbados, St. Kitts and Nevis) and from the most developed to the least developed in the world.

Both the marine resources as well as key problems affecting these resources (overfishing, pollution, habitat degradation and climate change) are shared to a very large extent by the many territories that make up this region. Highly variable progress exists across the region with regard to ocean and living marine resources governance. Capacities for living marine resources management vary considerably at national, sub-regional and regional levels.

The Caribbean: A shared challenge

Since the the begging of the CLME Project the vision of understanding the Caribbean as a shared challenge has been advocated; a challenge that will only be overcome if countries, IGO’s, civil society and everyone in the region works collaboratively. Click on the next video to find out more!聽
