    Description / Table of Contents: This report presents the assessment of Patagonian Shelf and associated river basins. The report focuses on the La Plata River Basin, the second largest watershed in South America, and the South Atlantic Drainage System, comprising basins that drain large arid areas of Argentina and one of the world's largest continental shelves. Pollution in the La Plata River Basin has caused considerable environmental degradation while fishing has changed marine habitats and communities. The root causes of environmental degradation in the Argentinean and Uruguayan Common Fishing Zone and the Uruguay River Basin, shared by Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, are identified and potential remedial policy options are presented.--Publisher's description

    Description / Table of Contents: This report presents the GIWA assessment of the Small Islands sub-system of the Caribbean Sea region, an area particularly vulnerable to human activities owing to the fragility of the island ecosystems and their limited carrying capacities. Habitat and community modification, as a result of anthropogenic pressures, was found to cause the most severe transboundary environmental and socio-economic impacts in the sub-system. The governments regard rapid economic growth as a priority, which they have failed to balance with the conservation and protection of important ecosystems. The causal chain analysis discusses the root causes of habitat and community modification by investigating the cause-effect pathways of the concern. Policy options are proposed that aim to provide solutions to these fundamental issues, in order to enhance the management of the region's aquatic environment.--Publisher's description

    Keywords: Environmental policy ; Environmental policy ; Environmental policy ; Mirim Lake (Brazil and Uruguay) Environmental conditions ; Doce River Valley (Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo, Brazil) Environmental conditions ; São Francisco River Watershed (Minas Gerais-Alagoas and Sergipe, Brazil) Environmental conditions
    Description / Table of Contents: Three separate sub-regions have been assessed within the region, including drainage basins and their associated coastal/marine zones: the South/Southeast Atlantic Basins, East Atlantic Basins, and São Francisco River Basin. Increased anthropogenic pressures due to economic development and urbanization in the coastal area have polluted the water environment and caused severe impact on important ecosystems such as coastal plains and mangrove ecosystems. Significant changes in the suspended solids transport/sedimentation dynamics in the river basins due to unsustainable land use practices associated to intense deforestation and damming has caused increasing erosion of coastal zones, silting of riverbeds, and modified the stream flows resulting in periods of water scarcity and flooding in some basins. The root causes of pollution and habitat and community modification are identified for the bi-national Mirim Lagoon Basin, a transboundary freshwater body shared between Brazil and Uruguay, and Doce River Basin that hosts biomes of global importance. Potential remedial policy options are presented.--Publisher's description

    Keywords: Environmental policy ; Caribbean Area Environmental conditions
    Description / Table of Contents: This report presents the GIWA assessment of the Caribbean Islands region, an archipelago comprising drainage basins and coastal areas that contain some of the world's most diverse and productive habitats. A variety of human activities are impacting the region's sensitive and unique ecosystems, upon which the population is so dependent for their social well-being and economic survival. Pollution, originating from both land-based sources and marine traffic, is of particular concern, but despite considerable and widespread environmental and socio-economic impacts, there has been a lack of appropriate measures aimed at mitigating this concern. The past and present status and future prospects are discussed, and the transboundary issues of pollution are traced back to their root causes. Policy options are analyzed that aim to address these driving issues in order to significantly improve environmental quality and secure the region's future prosperity
