The Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem project launches new Information Management System
The Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem project is proud to announce that a beta version of its Information Management System (IMS) is now online. The IMS, together with the Regional Environmental Monitoring Programme (REMP), aims to provide references and links to sources of reliable, up to date data and information on ecosystems, environment and related issues for decision making and governance.
These complementary components on data and information were developed and implemented under the responsibility of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission’s regional office for the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions (IOCARIBE). The tools are an IOCARIBE contribution to the Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem project (CLME), which aims to strengthen the management of the shared living marine resources of the Wider Caribbean. CLME is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and implemented by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO.
A workshop will take place in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, on 5-7 December 2012 to present the IMS/REMP tools to partners and stakeholders.
