"Biodiversity for Sustainable Development in the Caribbean through Ecosystem Based Management" (EBM-DSS) is a 4-year project (2015-2019) implemented by the UN Environment Caribbean Environment Programme (CEP) under the SPAW Protocol, which has been leading a process to ensemble and test a methodology that analysed ecosystem bio-ecological and socioeconomic aspects utilising a highly participative and inter-disciplinary group of stakeholders in the Dominican Republic in two pilot sites: Puerto Plata and Montecristi.

The overall goal of this project was to develop capacities and information systems as well as pilot test their application, that can be used by governments and non-governmental organisations, to support decisions on planning and managing coastal resources with an ecosystem-based management (EBM) approach.

Project implementation was possible thanks to the generous contributions from the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its Italian Agency for Cooperation and Development (AICS). With the support of the Italian company PROGES Planning and Development Consulting (PROGES) the transfer of knowledge on EBM and DSS application across the Wider Caribbean has been possible over the span of the project.
