Co-management is a relatively new concept in the Caribbean region. Over the last decade, the use of co-management arrangements in fisheries and coastal resource management has increased as new approaches to management have been sought. There is now more documentation of the various experiences with co-management that have increased our knowledge of conditions leading to success and failure and the unique characteristics of comanagement in the region. This project adds to that growing knowledge base through several new case studies. This report presents a comparative analysis of lessons learned and conditions for success from both the literature and from the six case studies conducted in this project.
