dc.descriptionIn the Caribbean Small Island Developing States (SIDS), high population densities, combined with population growth, urbanization and increased development, particularly residential and tourist resort development, has led to the contamination of underlying aquifers and surface water, and deterioration of coastal water quality. The overall objective of this Project is to strengthen the commitment and capacity of the participating countries to implement an integrated approach to the management of watersheds and coastal areas. The long-term goal is to enhance the capacity of the countries to plan and manage their aquatic resources and ecosystems on a sustainable basis. In particular, project activities will be focusing on improvements in integrated freshwater basin-coastal area management on each island of the regional groupings of Caribbean SIDS.
