Project Summary:
Sargassum influxes have had increasingly negative ecological and socio-economic impacts on Anguilla, British Virgin Islands and Montserrat since 2011. This project will implement a participatory and multi-level approach to manage sargassum influxes to protect and enhance coastal and marine biodiversity and associated livelihoods. Key activities include: improving research, monitoring and early warnings of influxes to inform decision-making; strengthening multi-stakeholder engagement; and building the capacity of coastal and marine managers and users for sargassum use, removal and rehabilitation of affected areas.
