1.2 Key ecosystem assessment and management gaps identified

Outcome 1: Transboundaryissuesanalysed and prioritiesdefined

(TDA)

Y2

Output

Activity

1.2.3 Ecosystem-wide

nutrient over-enrichment

and contaminant sources,

flows and levels assessed

  • Contaminant sources, in particular LBS point and non point, identified and assessed
  • Monitoring of reduced levels of nutrients releases at demo sites

Indicator

Nutrient overenrichment and contaminant sources, flows and levels are assessed, nevertheless national efforts are not regionally coordinated

Baseline

A regional assessment of nutrient and contaminant sources completed

Target

1.2 Key ecosystem assessment and management gaps identified

Outcome 1: Transboundaryissuesanalysed and prioritiesdefined

(TDA)

Output

Y2

Activity

  • Integrated analysis agreed by regional working group, describing transboundary pollution impacts
  • Ministerially-agreed LME and basin action programs and local ICM plans adopted

Indicator

impacts of transboundary

pollutionontheGoM

ecosystemassessed

Currentassessment of theenvironmentalimpacts of transboundarypollution are country driven and regionallyfragmented

Baseline

Target

A regional report on the Status of the Gulf of Mexico completed

Outcome 2: Strategic Action Programme (SAP)

Output

Y3

2.1 Strategies and actions for the reduction and control of nutrient over-enrichment, HABs and for the elimination of dead zones developed

Activity

2.1.2 Strategic Partnerships

between GoM LME

programme and institutions

responsible for integrated

management of the major

GoM river basins, as well as

the main coastal cities

developed.

  • Regional LSUPP GoM and Caribbean Sea developed;
  • Land and Coastal Use Planning Program for 4 major Mexican States in the GoM developed;
  • Number of agreements defined between GoM programme and relevant river basin counterparts for nutrient reduction strategies
  • New watershed council for the Grijalva Usumacinta basin

Indicator

Currently, no strategic partnerships. (WW2BW) US initiative, adopted by Mexican authorities currently implemented in Mexico’s driven initiatives, on-ground actions, policy and regulatory framework.

Baseline

Target

  • Linkages and agreements between watershed and coastal management authorities to reduce LBS of pollution into the GoM
  • Papaloapan Watershed Council, IBWC/CILA for Río Grande/Río Bravo, and Lower Mississippi River Watershed Council

Risk of Flooding and sea level rise

slide10

GoM LME Strategic Action Program (SAP)

The Strategic Action Program

(SAP) and

National Action Program

(NAPs) formulated and endorsed.

Target

SAP and respective NAPs completed and endorsed at appropriate levels (federal, state)

Education and OutreachComponents

March, 2010

slide12

Adapting to GoM LME Objectives

GoM LME Objectives

To set the foundations for LME wide ecosystem based management approaches for the rehabilitation of marine and coastal ecosystems, recovery of depleted fish-stocks and reduction of nutrient overloading

Education and Outreach General

Informed society,

Knowledge,

Participation,

Awareness,

Decision making

slide13

1.Public participation in the GoM LME through education and outreach activities

2. Training for present and future professionals involved in the GoMLME

3.- Replicability (in the GoM) of the results obtained in the pilot projects

GOALS for the E/O plan are:

slide14

Adapting to GoM LME Objectives

Activities to start

  • Implement activities to achieve best results in local actions within pilot projects and prepare the work plan for their replication throughout the GoM LME region
  • Enhanced capacity and mechanisms for stakeholder participation (formal and informal education and outreach activities)
  • Promote learning processes
  • Create synergistic collaboration with existing projects and efforts on education in the GoM LME region (Natural Protected Area of “Laguna de Terminos” strengthening existing activities)
  • Other training courses on mangrove restoration, sea grass beds
