What It’s All About: SUCCESS was launched in 2004 to provide global leadership in integrated coastal management, contributing to USAID objectives in biodiversity conservation, food security and climate change adaptation. The Coastal Resources Center at the University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography implements SUCCESS. With a program extension in 2009, the focus expanded to capacity development in marine protected areas, sustainable fisheries and livelihoods. GLOWS, which also was launched in 2004, is based out of Florida International University and provides global leadership on Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM), a framework linking water resources across water uses, ecosystems and communities. The 2009 extension incorporated cross-sectoral capacity building initiatives and established supporting networks for stakeholders to attain sustainable IWRM and Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) services.
