The USAID/Caribbean regional mission's Caribbean Marine Biodiversity Program (CMBP) seeks to reduce threats to marine-coastal biodiversity in priority areas in the Caribbean in order to achieve sustained biodiversity conservation, maintain critical ecosystem services and realize tangible improvements in human well-being for communities adjacent to marine managed areas. Objectives include improving the management of marine protected areas (MPAs); reducing threats to ecosystems including coral reefs, mangroves and sea grass beds; strengthening fisheries management and promoting sustainable livelihoods for coastal residents in four seascapes across five countries.
