Marine pollution in the Caribbean: not a minute to waste

A New World Bank report examines how marine pollution in the Caribbean threatens the region’s resilience to climate change. The report calls for urgent actions to restore damaged ecosystems and protect the Caribbean’s marine resources, a key source of food, livelihoods and jobs to millions of people dependent on tourism, fisheries and the ocean economy. The report “Marine Pollution in the Caribbean: Not a Minute to Waste”, identifies the key sources of marine pollution and the impact on the wider Caribbean. It also lays out an action plan to reverse this threat and transition towards a more sustainable “Blue Economy” that can generate growth and build resilience while preserving ocean resources.
