Executive Summary and Recommendations of the Feasibility Study on the Development of a Regional Reception Facilities Plan for the Small Island Developing States of the Wider Caribbean Region. Fourth Meeting of the Scientific, Technical and Advisory Committee (STAC) to the Protocol Concerning Pollution from Land-Based Sources and Activities in the Wider Caribbean.
This feasibility Study was conducted by RAC/REMPEITC-Caribe for the possible development of a regional reception facilities plan for the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) of the Wider Caribbean Region. The study includes a detailed analysis of shipping data, site visits and assessments of ports in 16 U.N. Member SIDS, and identification of possible measures to address the inadequacy of port reception facilities (PRFs) throughout the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR). The outputs of this report complement other strategies for improving management of ship generated wastes (SGW) and cargo residues within the WCR, and contributes to efforts towards improving the ability of WCR States to effectively fulfil their obligations under MARPOL, or to accede to MARPOL where a State is not already a Party.
