The Waitt Institute endeavors to ensure ecologically, economically, and culturally sustainable use of ocean resources. The Institute partners with governments committed to developing and implementing comprehensive, science-based, community-driven solutions for sustainable ocean management.
The Waitt Institute’s primary role in Blue Halo Curaçao is to provide technical expertise and facilitate the policymaking process. The Institute will fund the planning phase (2015 and 2016), contribute substantially to implementation (2017 and 2018), and support education and outreach (throughout the project). The vision is implementation run fully by Curaçaoans and sustainably financed by 2018.
