State of the Marine Environment and Economies (SOMEE)
In 2017, a CLME+ SAP Interim Coordination Mechanism (ICM) was established among 8 regional organizations with a core mandate on the marine environment. Regional ocean governance across the CLME+, currently represented by the ICM, will be strengthened and will ultimately have a permanent standing through the work of the CLME+ Project. The eventual permanent policy coordination 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 an introduction to this unique assessment, please check out the SOMEE booklet (versión en español).
The CLME+ Hub is an initiative of the Secretariat of the CLME+ Interim Coordination Mechanism (ICM), in collaboration with the CLME+ ICM Membership and (prospective) Partner Organizations. Development of the Hub has benefited from the financial support of the UNDP/GEF Project: “Catalysing Implementation of the Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the Sustainable Management of shared Living Marine Resources in the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems” (CLME+ Project, 2015-2020). The CLME+ Project is executed by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) in close collaboration with a large number of global, regional and national-level partners.
