Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) for the Canary Current Large Marine Ecosystem
The Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis (TDA) presents an analysis of the “ecosystem status” of the Canary Current Large Marine Ecosystem (CCLME) and threats to the long-term sustainability of coastal and marine processes. The document has evolved out of the Preliminary TDA developed during the preparatory phase of the CCLME Project (2004−2006) and concluded during the project’s implementation phase (Phase 1). Section 1 of the CCLME TDA introduces the region and presents background information on the CCLME Project and partner activities to date. Section 2 summarizes the current state of knowledge about the coastal and marine ecosystem, associated living marine resources, socio-econonic situation and governance arrangements within the CCLME. Section 3 discusses the major perceived transboundary problems in the CCLME, including issues related to living marine resources, deterioration of habitats and the quality of the coastal waters of the CCLME region.
