The Caribbean Large Marine Ecosystem and Adjacent Regions (CLME) Project and the Integrating Watershed and Coastal Areas Management in Small Island Developing States (GEF-IWCAM) Project have joined with the Association of Caribbean Media Workers (ACM) in hosting a training workshop for journalists on covering natural resources management and conservation.

The workshop is to be convened in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago from 17 – 19 May, 2011.

Twenty journalists from 16 countries will participate in the workshop facilitated by CLME, GEF-IWCAM and ACM resource personnel.

The collaboration is designed to increase the ability of regional journalists to more effectively cover issues related to Caribbean watersheds and coastal areas and shared marine ecosystems.

The CLME Project is implemented by UNDP and UNESCO and executed by UNOPS while the Global Environment Facility provides funding for the IWCAM Project which is implemented by UNDP and UNEP and co-executed by UNEP’s Regional Coordinating Unit in Kingston and the Caribbean Environmental Health Institute (CEHI).
