Raising the Issue of the Management of the Caribbean Sea in Samoa
Michael Witter
In their preparations for the 3rd SIDS conference in Samoa in 2014, Caribbean SIDS do not appear to be according a high priority to issues pertaining to the Caribbean Sea. The paper argues that these countries should place the Caribbean Sea with its resources at the centre of their development strategy. Apart from enhancing their own development prospects, repositioning the Caribbean Sea at the centre of development policy will align the region with the Pacific SIDS' rebranding of themselves as Large Ocean States.
