dc.description.abstract Cruise ship vacations provide a source of worldwide recreation for over 11 million passengers annually. However, there is particular concern over the cumulative environmental impacts these vessels have on the marine environment. Recognizing the need to address the health of the marine environment, Conservation International and the Cruise Lines International Association worked together to implement changes in wastewater discharge practices. The present Masters Project addresses the policy issues associated with wastewater discharge in the Caribbean region and presents recommendations for future mitigation of this environmental threat. It also presents the results of a geospatial analysis of current discharge regulations and provides maps to guide future management decisions. The goal of this geospatial analysis is to help develop and promote best practices concerning wastewater discharge by cruise ships in the Caribbean region.
