Abstract

This Darwin Plus funded project aims to provide the foundations for strategic, sustainable management of the coastal and marine environment in the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI).

Work Package 3 will provide in-depth support and capacity building in adapting and using marine ecological indicators, maximising the use of existing data, to support decision making and the implementation of a new TCI Government Environment Strategy. The aim is to implement marine indicators to monitor and assess changes in coastal and marine natural capital, enabling progressive adoption of a monitoring programme developed through a capacity-building process with Turks and Caicos Islands' Government (TCIG) staff.

This document provides a summary of the indicators which could be used and outlines a plan for the adaptation of the indicators to make them applicable to the TCI. The indicators have been identified through the literature review which was completed as part of Work Package 3 (JNCC Report No. 693).
