C. CRABBE, M. James. Capacity building and policy development in Belize marine protected areas, an example for Caribbean integrated coastal management. Rev. biol. trop [online]. 2014, vol.62, suppl.3, pp.432-436. ISSN 0034-7744.

Sustainability science can, through capacity building, allow for integrated stakeholder management of the vital Caribbean marine ecosystems. We did a capacity building exercise in two major coral reef areas in Southern Belize. The key outcome was a six-month personal/professional action plan developed by each participant about tactics for leading, educating and supporting issues regarding sustainable development and tactics for collaboration to influence policy decisions. Our results can be applied across the Caribbean. Rev. Biol. Trop. 62 (Suppl. 3): 287-291. Epub 2014 September 01.
