We apologise that there have been far too many occasions in late 2014 when this web-site has been down, and also some occasions when emails to @ukotcf.org addresses have been bouncing or simply disappearing.

In mid-December, we changed our internet service provider and we are pleased that the web-site is fully operational again.

The temporary fault with @ukotcf.org addresses has now been cured. However, emails sent between about noon GMT on 16th Dec and about 16:00 GMT on 17th Dec (and not copied to a non-ukotcf.org address) have not been received. We would appreciate people sending these again. An erratic and small proportion of earlier emails appear not to have been received also.

08/12/2015 Management of Marine Resources in Gibraltar’s Waters
This topic has been of great concern in recent years, with much unauthorised cross-border fishing activity taking place. The Government of Gibraltar (HMGoG) decided to address this by securing hard evidence and a clear independent scientific analysis of the situation by qualified experts, one of whom would also chair the working group participating in this study. HMGoG sought UKOTCF’s advice and commissioned this via the latter, although neither HMGoG nor UKOTCF as an organisation influenced the report. The report and a statement by HMGoG were published on 4 June 2013.

The main conclusions are that:

  • the basis for Gibraltar's environmental protection laws are sound;
  • information currently available is insufficient to provide clear results on the state of fish stocks;
  • HMGoG should therefore continue to act in keeping with established precautionary principles of conservation and pursue active management of the marine environment; and
  • future changes to environmental management must be dependent on these issues.

UKOTCF is pleased to note that HMGoG is planning to act rapidly in response to this report with a strategy of measures in order to improve monitoring systems whilst nurturing and enabling the sustainable use of the habitats naturally surrounding Gibraltar.

21/06/2013 UKOTCF continues to support major conservation project in three Caribbean UKOTs
In 2003, at the request of UKOTs and the British Government, UKOTCF drafted and co-ordinated an application to the European Union for a project to conserve important areas and stimulate sustainable use of them to help provide livelihoods for local people: “Management of Protected Areas to Support Sustainable Economies” (MPASSE).It took seven years to work through European Commission procedures but, in 2010-11, grant contracts were issued to the National Trust for the Cayman Islands, the National Parks Trust of the [British] Virgin Islands, and the Turks & Caicos National Trust, with UKOTCF continuing to give scientific and environmental advice (see Forum News 37:1-5, December 2010 here).

As the project moves into its final 18 months, the 9th international Project Steering Committee meeting was held in June 2013, reported here by TCI’s Channel 4 News.

04/02/2013 UKOTCF article on MPASSE project published
We have neglected our past and present, so that the future of our natural and built heritage is uncertain. Recent and current work, including an EU-supported joint project between the National Trust for the Cayman Islands, National Parks Trust of the Virgin Islands, the Turks and Caicos National Trust and UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum, are providing a future for natural and historical assets.

The full abstract and article is available in the Journal of Heritage Tourism.

UKOTCF is pleased to have been able to facilitate Grenadine Escape Ltd providing continuing support for conservation by the Turks & Caicos Reef Fund
13/12/2012 Proceedings of workshop on White Paper now available
On 2nd October 2012 UKOTCF organised a workshop, with a wide range of participants from Britain and the UKOTs, to discuss aspects of UK Government’s 2012 White Paper which affect the environment and how to move forward from this. The Proceedings are now available.

This workshop follows on from workshops organised by UKOTCF in 2010 and 2011 on biodiversity strategies, trying to complement the UK Government biodiversity 'strategy' for UKOTs – which was really a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between UK ministries, rather than a strategy – and attempting to relate this to other commitments, such as the Environment Charters and the Aichi Targets. The reports of these workshops are available at the links to the years above.

The 2012 workshop arose from concerns that the UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum network believes exist with the environmental aspects of UK Government’s White Paper The Overseas Territories: Security, Success and Sustainability (Cm 8374)

Following the publication of the White Paper, UKOTCF put considerable effort into analysing the White Paper and produced a review and a look at priority needs.

14/08/2012 UKOTCF analysis of White Paper on UKOTs
UKOTCF and its partners have analysed in depth the environmental aspects
of the UK Government's White Paper on UK Overseas Territories. A
