‘People Managing Oceans’ civil society strategic action programme

The civil society is being mobilised to contribute to actions by government, inter-governmental agencies and others for sustainable management of the Caribbean Sea and North Brazil Shelf.

This specifically supports implementation of the 10-year Strategic Action Programme for the Sustainable Management of the Shared Living Marine Resources of the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems (CLME+ SAP), which seeks to contribute to a long-term vision of “a healthy marine environment that provides benefits and livelihoods for the well-being of the people of the region.”  The CLME+ SAP has been politically endorsed by a total of 36 Ministers representing 26 countries and 8 overseas territories: Antigua & Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica, Dominican Republic, France (with 6 overseas territories in the CLME+ region), Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Montserrat (UK overseas territory), Nicaragua, Panama, St. Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, St. Vincent & the Grenadines, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, the United States of America (with 2 overseas territories in the CLME+ region).

The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) is an executing partner on the GEF-funded UNDP-led CLME+ Project, which is focused on implementing the CLME+ Strategic Action Programme.  As part of this, CANARI has worked with civil society to develop the Civil Society Action Programme for Sustainable Management of the Shared Living Marine Resources of the Caribbean and North Brazil Shelf Large Marine Ecosystems (CLME+ C-SAP).  This has been published as “People Managing Oceans”:

CANARI is currently disseminating and raising awareness about “People Managing Oceans” to all stakeholders, including:

  • promoting endorsement by civil society to encourage them to align their work to address the priorities identified;
  • promoting with donors to encourage them to align their small grant programmes to support civil society with implementation of the “People Managing Oceans” programme; and
  • promoting to governments and inter-governmental agencies to encourage them to work more with civil society as partners in national and regional projects, programmes and initiatives.

Forward any questions regarding “People Managing Oceans” programme or the process that led to its development, please feel free to contact Melanie Andrews, CANARI Technical Officer at [email protected].


  1. For us to save the planet and nature we must first eradicate all religions and worship the elements. To have that ultimate respect and protection over it. Ade du Dembalah.

  2. Yes I agree,but most humans need to believe,that there is someone up there,and they have to believe in him and follow the book or else burn in hell.The day will come that,goverments will forbid burials for lack of space,and we will all be burnt in the crematoriums.Whats the diffrence?
