Governance arrangements for marine ecosystems of the Wider Caribbean Region (2013)
The Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem and Adjacent Areas (CLME) Project aims to improve management of shared living marine resources (LMRs) within the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR). The Transboundary Diagnostic Analyses (TDAs) for the three fisheries ecosystems have identified weak governance as a root cause of the problems facing these social ecological systems. The CLME Project has a strong emphasis on assessing LMR governance systems and on proposing ways of strengthening them. The treatment of governance in the CLME Project is based on the LME Governance Framework developed during the PDF-B Phase. The CLME Project was designed to begin the process of building the LME Governance Framework for the WCR through a series of targeted activities, pilot projects and case studies. The governance assessment aspect of these pilots and case studies has been approached through a common methodology. In the CLME Project the following broad and inclusive definition of governance has been adopted.
