Join me and my AIDA colleagues on Wednesday, September 30th in New York City to celebrate AIDA’s work to defend coral reefs. We are releasing a guide that will help governments craft the best possible protections for coral reef ecosystems. This publication (also available in Spanish) is the product of AIDA’s collaboration and partnership with Mayer Brown LLP and the Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice over the past two years. Together, we have worked with pro-bono attorneys from all over the world to identify best regulatory practices that can help ensure reef protection.
Coral reefs across the globe are being destroyed by coastal development and resource extraction, pollution, and the impacts of climate change. AIDA is working to defend reefs in the Americas by helping governments improve protections, policies and laws. The guide will be an essential tool in this work. Because the findings in the guide are broadly applicable, we hope to share it with reef advocates and governments in many nations.
Feel free to invite friends and colleagues, and forward this invitation to others you think might be interested either in our corals work or in AIDA in general. Please RSVP online to attend!
