Integrated Assessment and Management of the Gulf of Mexico Large Marine Ecosystem
|Project Category:||Large Marine Ecosystem|
The full GEF project proposal will address the transboundary concerns of the countries bordering the Gulf of Mexico Large Marine Ecosystem. These will be defined in the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis and prioritised in the Strategic Action Programme (both of which will be completed during the PDF-B intervention). The main objective of this project will be to build the capacity and initiate governmental and institutional arrangements for planning and implementing region-wide efforts to address critical ecosystem and environmental problems in the GOMLME. In summary, the full project is expected to assist with agreed incremental costs of implementing the SAP formulated with Block B funding as follows: (1) policy, legal, institutional reforms related to habitat loss; management of living resources; and land-based sources of pollution; (2) conduct on-the-ground area-specific demonstrations related to the three priority problems (above) plus their relation to fluctuating climatic regimes and vulnerability to storm events; (3) establish an institutional arrangement for co-operation among the three nations sharing the LME.
