Understanding and addressing the impacts of threats to marine ecosystems/biodiversity in the UK overseas territories in the Caribbean

This project aims to identify threats to biodiversity and policy responses to the need for biodiversity management plans in three UK overseas territories in the Caribbean. Social, governance and ecological components in this project will involve surveys of communities, key decision makers and coral reefs in Turks and Caicos Islands, Cayman Islands and Anguilla. Methodologies are similar to those employed in the FORCE project.
