CLME+ SAP: A 10-year Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the sustainable management of shared Living Marine Resources in the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems (CLME+ region).
The CLME+ SAP (2015-2025) is a key output for the first UNDP/GEF CLME Project (2009-2014). Numerous sister UN agencies, global and regional institutions and organisations, and more than 20 countries from the CLME+ region contributed to the development of the SAP.
