The Building Resilience in the Eastern Caribbean through Reduction in Marine Litter (ReMLit) project
Marine pollution in the Eastern Caribbean is a threat to the development of a sustainable Blue Economy. That is why reducing marine pollution in the Eastern Caribbean is one of the priorities of the OECS which drives the Blue Economy agenda in the region. This issue is being adressed through the implementation of one major project: the Building Resilience in the Eastern Caribbean through Reduction in Marine Litter (ReMLit) project.
The OECS, through the Ocean Governance and Fisheries Unit partnered with the Government of Norway to achieve the reduction of marine pollution in the Eastern Caribbean through the implementation of the ReMLIT project. Launched in 2019, the ReMLIT project is expected to be completed by 2022.
There are six beneficiary countries such as:
- Antigua and Barbuda,
- Commonwealth of Dominica,
- Saint Lucia,
- Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
The ten music artists represent theses six OECS Member States.
