Trinidad and Tobago joins UK’s 30by30 alliance for marine protection
An excerpt from the Trinidad Newsday
Trinidad and Tobago has become one of the latest country to join the Global Ocean Alliance and the High Ambition Coalition (HAC) for Nature and People, an environmental initiative developed by the United Kingdom.
Planning Minister Camille Robinson-Regis and British High Commissioner Harriet Cross made the announcement on Saturday.
The alliance now consists of 54 countries, which aims to protect at least 30 per cent of the global ocean in Marine Protected Areas and Other Effective area-based Conservation Measures, two separate designations, by 2030, a programme referred to as the “30by30 target.”
