CLME Reef and Pelagic TDA
The TDAs presented in this report cover the reef and pelagic ecosystems. The CCA statements developed by the TTT in January 2010 were also validated using the Global International Waters Assessment (GIWA) methodology and incorporated in the TDAs. Preliminary drafts of the
TDAs were presented to the Technical Task Team (TTT) at its two meetings in September and November 2010 as well as at the CLME Steering Committee meeting in November 2010, both in Panama. Feedback received was incorporated in the TDAs. An expanded draft, which also
included a request for information, was circulated to the participating countries in December 2010, two of whom provided comments and relevant information. A brief questionnaire was also circulated to the countries in February 2011 with the aim of addressing existing data and
information gaps at the country level. Comprehensive comments were also provided by the CLME Project Coordinating Unit.
