The director of the Centre of Research of Coastal Ecosystems (CIEC) in the central Cuban province of Ciego de Avila, Adan Zuñiga Rios, added that experts from the Dominican Republic and Haiti are also taking part in this initiative to promote social, environmental, economic and cultural actions.
The CIEC specialists provide information from the coastal-marine area, mainly from the eastern region of Cuba, because of the geological bond of this territory with the two above mentioned countries,” Zuñiga Rios explained.
Some of the works being carried out include the environmental rehabilitation, the preservation of biodiversity and the creation of protected marine areas, mainly in Haiti.
Likewise, the Cuban experts are giving lectures to the other members of the project on the General Management of coastal areas.
The biodiversity of seas surrounding the countries involved in the project as well as the increasing and excessive demand of natural resources, urge scientific institutions to find solutions to generate sustainable benefits without harming the environment.
Another CIEC specialist, Omar Fernandez Perez, announced that they also provide information for the project of the Marine Atlas of the Caribbean, which is directed by the Oceanographic Commission (COI-UNESCO).
