The Strategic Action Programme for the Sustainable Management of the Shared Living Marine Resources of the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems (CLME+ SAP)
[Final Version, 26 April 2013] including Annex with Ministerial Endorsements (status on 4 September 2013)] Under the CLME Project, a Strategic Action Programme (SAP) was developed which provides a comprehensive roadmap towards sustainable living marine resources management through strengthened and consolidated regional cooperation. The SAP combines actions for structural change with capacity building at the regional, national and local levels, and high-priority management interventions and investments on the ground. It puts substantial focus on the strengthening of existing organizations and arrangements for the management of living marine resources, and on the coordination among the organizations and arrangements. Remaining gaps in these arrangements will be gradually addressed, and the principle of subsidiary management -- in which responsibility lies at the scale closest to the issue to be managed -- will be optimally applied.
