Collage Competition Invites Caribbean Youth to Reflect on Land-Based Sources of Marine Pollution

Kingston, 2nd February, 2011. Today, as World Wetlands Day raised awareness on the importance of wetlands as natural barriers protecting the ocean from sedimentation and pollution coming from the land, UNEP’s Caribbean Environment Programme (UNEP-CEP) launched the Wider Caribbean LBS Protocol Collage competition. This competition invites school children throughout the region to illustrate how to protect the Caribbean Sea from land-based sources of pollution, in keeping with the theme: “A Future that is Pollution Free – Join Hands to protect our Caribbean Sea”.

The Protocol concerning pollution from land-based sources and activities, known as the LBS Protocol, was adopted in 1999 by the governments of the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR) in response to the need to protect the fragile Caribbean Sea from human activities. Considered by many to be the most significant agreement of its kind, it establishes regional effluent limitations for domestic water discharges and requires national plans to address non-point sources of pollution such as agricultural runoff. The region had to wait for 11 years, however, to see the entry of the LBS Protocol into force, when the Government of the Bahamas became the ninth country to ratify the Protocol in 2010, thus establishing the basis for the Protocol to become international law.

Pollution Solutions! - UNEP Collage Competition

Pollution and littering has become a more significant problem in Antigua and Barbuda over the past years. This problem has escalated as the government has expressed the inability to continue funding the cleaning of a number of the beaches. Beyond the issue of the litter being unsightly, it also causes problems within our coastal ecosystems. For years environmental enthusiasts have espoused the concern that plastic bags floating into the sea have confused turtles, causing them to believe that they are jellyfish. This already rare species then eat the plastic bags and inevitably perish.

The Environment Division, in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), is therefore launching a collage competition within the schools, for children 12 to 18 years who are a part of a class, organisation or club, in order to bring awareness to this pressing issue. The theme “A Future that is Pollution Free – Join Hands to Protect our Caribbean Sea”, focuses on our beautiful Caribbean Sea, and how we can protect its fragile, vulnerable coastal and marine ecosystems from land-based sources of pollution.
