The CLME+ SAP, endorsed at the political level by 25 countries from the CLME+ region, is a key output of the CLME Project (2009-2014). It was developed through a broad consultative process, and provides a roadmap towards sustainable living marine resources management through strengthened and consolidated regional cooperation.
The SAP tackles root causes of habitat degradation, marine pollution and unsustainability of fisheries by combining actions for structural change with capacity building and high-priority management interventions and on-the-ground investments. Substantial focus has been placed on strengthening existing regional organisations responsible for the management of shared living marine resources.
Through the CLME+ SAP, countries from the region committed to implementing a comprehensive package of coordinated “Strategies” and “Actions”. Six Strategies and four Sub-Strategies have been defined under the SAP, covering a total of 76 short-term (0-5 years) and medium-term (6-10 years) priority actions for better marine resources governance.
