Pesca partnership for ecologically sustainable coastal areas

The Foundation launched the Partnership for Ecologically Sustainable Coastal Areas (PESCA) to balance the continued growth and development of the region, the long-term health and sustainability of the coastal zone and coral reef, and the needs of local stakeholders.

The Partnership for Ecologically Sustainable Coastal Areas implements replicable coastal management programs to protect the areas’ precious natural resources. PESCA is a public-private coalition represented by the Dominican Council of Fishing and Aquaculture (CODOPESCA), the Dominican Ministry of Environment, Club Med, the regional hotel association, the Juanillo Association of Fishermen and Artisans, the University of Miami, and Counterpart International, among others.
