Coastal degradation leaves the Caribbean in troubled waters

Abstract

Recent assessments in the Caribbean indicate that suspended solids in the coastal and marine environment are already leading to severe environmental impacts in the region(a). Key economic sectors are threatened by sedimentation and excessive runoff, and future scenarios indicate potential increases in the amounts of sediments transported from land to sea. Can something be done before local livelihoods may be irreversibly affected by these processes?
