"Caribbean Countries Signing on To Fight Marine Pollution"

"As the Caribbean grapples with the pollution of its waters, the ratification of a protocol designed to help arrest the problem appears to be gathering steam."

"In the last three years alone, four countries have signed the Protocol Concerning Pollution from Land-based Sources and Activities (LBS Protocol), bringing to 10 the total number of countries to have done so — 13 years after it was adopted.

They are Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Bahamas, Guyana, USA, France, Trinidad & Tobago, Panama, Grenada, and St Lucia."
