Blue Halo Initiative – Montserrat
Waitt Institute Blue Halo Initiative – Ocean management in the Caribbean continues to move forward this year thanks to a new partnership between the government of Montserrat and the Waitt Institute.
The Blue Halo Initiative in Barbuda led to groundbreaking, comprehensive new laws for the coastal waters around the island. Repeating those efforts with Blue Halo Curaçao and Blue Halo Montserrat will raise the bar for sustainable ocean policy around the world.
Montserrat’s Chief Fisheries Officer, Alwyn Ponteen remarked, “Partnering with the Waitt Institute will support Montserrat in developing the skills and resources necessary to ensure that our ocean remain healthy and productive for future generations.”
The Honorable Claude Hogan, Minister of Agriculture, Trade, Land, Housing and the Environment said “Conserving our ocean resources is a priority for our Government working in the interest of our citizens, and the support of the Waitt Institute will enable us to realize this.”
