The Caribbean is home to about 1% of the world’s biodiversity, 10% of the world’s coral reefs and a large proportion of the world’s endemic species. Caribbean countries are heavily dependent on marine and coastal ecosystems, which are a source of livelihood for their populations and form the basis of national economies (agriculture, fi sheries, tourism).
