State of Marine Environment and Associated Economies (SOMEE) Report


The State of the Marine Environment and Associated Economies (SOMEE) is an integrated reporting mechanism owned by the countries and members of the Coordination Mechanism for Ocean Governance in the Wider Caribbean/CLME+ region. This initiative aims to institutionalize a collaborative approach to monitoring the status of the marine environment and its contributions to the sustainable blue economy.

Ultimately, the SOMEE report will serve as a long-term decision-support tool that will help enable policy coordination across the ocean governance organizations of the Caribbean, Gulf of Mexico, and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems.
