Industrial Shrimp Action Network’s achievement at Global Biodiversity Forum

Member organizations of the Industrial Shrimp Action Network (ISA Net) participated at the Global Biodiversity Forum (GBF) 13 and the Ramsar COP7 held in San Jose, Costa Rica from May 7 to May 18, 1999 and at the World Meeting of the NGOs, Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples that also gathered in San Jose on May 7-9.

At the GBF, the presentations given by ISA Net’s members (from Ecuador, Honduras, Bangladesh, Thailand, USA and UK) were well received. As a result, the GBF endorsed all the recommendations that were proposed. For those interested in this issue, the complete set of recommendations is available in the WRM web page.
