Gulf of Mexico LME - Strategic Action Programme (SAP)
This Strategic Action Programme (SAP) is a policy document negotiated by the governments of United Mexican States (Mexico) and the United States of America (U.S.) through the coordination of the appointed Technical National Focal Points to the Gulf of Mexico Large Marine Ecosystem Project (GoM LME), the Secretaría de Medio Ambiente y Recursos Naturales (SEMARNAT) of Mexico and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the U.S. The document outlines the Strategic Action Programme (SAP) for the GoM LME and aims to promote shared policy goals and legal and institutional actions to address priority transboundary problems that have been previously identified by both NOAA and SEMARNAT in the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA). The TDA was completed in October 2011 and is the primary source of scientific and technical information for the recommended strategic actions presented. This document and the TDA have been developed as part of the project, “Integrated Assessment and Management of the Gulf of Mexico Large Marine Ecosystem”, with the financial support of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and the implementation support of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
