The Integrated Transboundary Ridges-to-Reef Management of the Mesoamerican Reef Project will be a five year $9 million US GEF Project which will be executed by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and the Central American Commission on Environment and Development (CCAD). The four participating countries will be Mexico, Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. The main objectives will be:

  1. Catalyzing multi-state cooperation to balance conflicting water uses in transboundary surface and groundwater basins while considering climatic variability and change;
  2. Catalyzing multi-state cooperation to rebuild marine fisheries and reduce pollution of coasts and Large Marine Ecosystems while considering climatic variability and change; and
  3. Support foundational capacity building for joint, ecosystem-based management of transboundary water systems.
