The portal contains data, information and knowledge products generated by major CRFM projects and activities that would be of interest to all Caribbean fisheries and ocean stakeholders.
This section contains the outputs of the project titled: “Fishery-Related Ecological and Socio-Economic Assessments of the Impacts of Climate Change and Variability and Development of an Associated Monitoring System”. This project was funded through the Caribbean Regional Track of the Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience (PPCR), executed by the Mona Office for Research and Innovation (MORI) at the University of West Indies at Mona, Jamaica, and with the Caribbean Regional Fisheries Mechanism (CRFM) as the co-implementer. The project aims to improve availability and use of information for “climate-smart” planning and management in the fisheries and aquaculture sector in the Caribbean. The project focused on six focal countries (Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, Haiti, Jamaica, Saint Lucia and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines). The project began in January 2018 and is scheduled to conclude in January 2020.
In this project a climate-smart approach to fisheries involves sustainably increasing economic output, maintaining healthy ecosystems and stocks, increasing the resilience of households and communities dependent on marine resources and reducing vulnerability in the fisheries and aquaculture sector to disaster risks and climate change impacts.
