EOI - Caribbean Marine Research

UK DEFRA has a Call for Expressions of Interest (509KB Zip file) for research proposals focused on understanding the impact and addressing threats to marine ecosystems in the UK Overseas Territories in the Caribbean. Funding will range from £50k to £150k and the closing date is 16:00hrs on 30th September 2011. Replies may be sent by email to DEFRA. The marine research priorities identified by the Governments of the UK Overseas Territories (OTs)  in the Caribbean and Bermuda are:
1.    Identifying and quantifying the scale and nature of the impact of threats to marine ecosystems, this should include ecological impact, and where practicable associated social and economic impacts.
2.    Developing solutions to address these threats and their impacts. Solutions must take into consideration the legislative, policy, administrative, financial and practical context of the OTs.
