Summary: This regional workshop was organized in accordance with RAC/REMPEITC-Caribe’s proposal to IMO’s Technical Co-operation Committee for the Center’s activities of the 2015-2017 biennium, and as recommended in RAC/REMPEITC-Caribe’s 4 Aug 2013 Report of the Regional Workshop on MARPOL and Port Reception Facilities, and 27 May 2015 Report of the Dutch Caribbean Port Reception Facilities Workshop in Aruba. The objective of the three-day workshop was to further discussions and to continue the process of possibly creating a Regional Reception Facility Plan (RRFP) for the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) of the Wider Caribbean Region (WCR). Significant information was gathered during this workshop regarding the current state of port reception facilities in the Region, as depicted in the Findings of Section 6 and as summarized in Figure 6.2.2 on Page 22. Workshop recommendations were generated with the consensus of all participants, and include follow-on steps to be undertaken in order to assist the SIDS of the WCR in developing a detailed proposal for appropriate and effective regional arrangements pertaining to waste management and port reception facilities that may be submitted to the Marine Environmental Protection Committee (MEPC) for consultation, if agreed upon by all participating Member States.
