State of the Marine Environment and Economies (SOMEE)

In 2017, an Interim Coordination Mechanism, the CLME+ SAP ICM was established among 8 regional organizations with a core mandate on the marine environment. The CLME+ Project is now further supporting the regional negotiations towards the identification of a Permanent Coordination Mechanism for Ocean Governance in the Wider Caribbean. The Permanent Mechanism is expected to have as one of its core tasks: the coordinated, collaborative development of a long-term reporting mechanism and decision-support mechanism: “State of the Marine Environment and associated Economies” (CLME+ SOMEE). The first version of the CLME+ SOMEE report will be launched in 2020. For a simple introduction to this unique assessment, please check out the SOMEE booklet.
