LATIN AMERICAN REGIONAL GROUP

GEOGRAPHICAL FOCUS AREA: Latin America and Caribbean countries.

The Latin American Regional Group was adopted by the CRC in 2019 and is formed by representatives of different organizations from Latin American and Caribbean countries to share information across the region, and/or in a shared language mostly in Spanish. The group fosters cooperation, collaboration, interaction, and communication among its constituents and meets bi-monthly to report progress and share experiences. During the next one to three years, the group plans to host and collaborate to develop important webinar topics.

 

The regional group is led by primary chair, Samuel E. Suleimán-Ramos (Sociedad Ambiente Marino, Puerto Rico) and by Co-Chair, Phanor Montoya Maya (Corales de Paz).

PRIORITIES

The areas of focus are collecting and highlighting research from Latin American countries who are doing restoration and looking into restoration accomplishments from countries with low resources/funding, impact of socio economics.
