Brief Description:
The Parliamentary Conservation Caucus model will be leveraged to raise awareness amongst legislators on blue economy opportunities and Large Marine Ecosystem (LME) Strategic Action Programmes (SAPs), as well as facilitate regional cooperation towards enhanced transboundary marine governance in Latin America and the Caribbean, East Africa, and Southeast Asia. In the Wider Caribbean specifically, active Conservation Caucuses in the Parliaments of Colombia and Mexico will be engaged to strengthen national and regional policy that promotes the implementation of the Cartagena Convention, CLME+ SAP, and other national and/or regional initiatives to strengthen marine conservation.

En el Gran Caribe específicamente, los Caucus de Conservación activos en los Parlamentos de Colombia y México se involucrarán para fortalecer la política nacional y regional que promueve la implementación de la Convención de Cartagena, CLME + SAP y otras iniciativas nacionales y / o regionales para fortalecer la gobernanza marina.
