Abstract: The Integrated Coastal Area Management (ICAM) Training Workshop for the English Speaking Caribbean States was held in Bridgetown, Barbados, March 16–18, 2011. The Meeting was attended by 22 participants representing Antigua & Barbuda, Barbados, Curacao, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Saint Lucia and Trinidad & Tobago. The main objective of the meeting was to assist Member States in building the resilience of SIDS economies mainly dependant on coastal tourism using knowledge and expertise of the CZMU of Barbados for developing their own capacity to manage coastal areas. The meeting updated the ICAM management plan for the Caribbean Small islands incorporating economic and social issues as well as recent priorities of climate change adaptation and coastal hazard management. It was also agreed to conduct national assessments of capacity, science and technology and governance structures collated into a regional assessment. The group agreed to complete a 10 year project document with a 5 year Implementation Plan to be coordinated jointly with the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC).
