Abstract

The aim of the Darwin Plus funded project DPLUS119 ‘Technical assistance programme for effective coastal-marine management in the Turks and Caicos Islands’ is to provide foundations for strategic, sustainable management of the marine and coastal environment of the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) through provision of practical tools and enhanced capabilities to consider biodiversity, conservation, and understand natural capital approaches by decision makers and local communities.

Natural Capital approaches are investigated in this study of the shallow marine coastal areas of the Turks and Caicos Islands to create a Natural Capital Asset Register for the first time. The work builds on the marine evidence base of the Turks and Caicos Islands, using key scientific literature and mapping products to develop the Asset Register for twelve benthic habitat classes.
