Action plan for the Caribbean of Marine Mammals (MMAP) in the Wider Caribbean Region
United Nations Environment Programme, Caribbean Environment Programme

The Specially Protected Areas and Wildlife (SPAW) Protocol, born out of the Convention for the Protection and Development of the Marine Environment of the Wider Caribbean Region (Cartagena Convention), came into force in 2000 and is the only regional biodiversity legal agreement for the advancement of the conservation and protection of the marine environment in the Wider
Caribbean Region (WCR). All the species of the WCR listed in Annex II of the SPAW Protocol are considered to be threatened or endangered species and their capture, take or possession is prohibited, unless for traditional use to satisfy cultural and subsistence
needs. The SPAW Protocol calls for the development and implementation of conservation, recovery or management programmes, as well as guidelines and criteria for the management of protected species.

Global Resources Outlook 2019: Natural Resources for the Future We Want - Summary for Policymakers
United Nations Environment Programme, International Resource Panel

Modelling undertaken by the International Resource Panel shows that with the right resource e ciency and sustainable consumption and production policies in place, by 2060 growth in global resource use can slow by 25 per cent, global gross domestic product could grow 8 per cent – especially for low- and middle-income na- tions – and greenhouse gas emissions could be cut by 90 per cent compared with projections for continuing along historical trends. Such projections are based on the understanding that growth rates in emerging and oth- er developing economies must be balanced by absolute reductions in resource use in developed countries.
