The goal of the DLIST project is to ensure that collaborative management arrangements for stress reduction are in place to protect the ecological integrity of the transboundary BCLME and sustain living marine resources vital to the sustainable development of coastal communities. The Project Objective is to bridge the information gap by using innovative ICT applications to provide access to training and to increase the flow of information between experts, institutions and networks and coastal players including communities, as well as between themselves, so a “common pool of knowledge” is created and maintained.
