    Abstract

    Monkey River Village (MRV), situated where the Monkey River meets the Gulf of Honduras, is a small dot on the map of Belize, but the voices of the 200 residents can echo the concerns and beliefs of many similar Caribbean communities. One major issue which affects the standard of living in MRV, as identified by a community assessment conducted in 2004, is the status of agriculture in the region (Higdon et al. 2004). The waters surrounding MRV support large-scale commercial farming of shrimp and bananas, in addition to small subsistence farms (milpas). Using the principles of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) as a tool, we conducted an assessment of agriculture surrounding MRV and its effect on the lives of the villagers.
