January 29 2012 In the face of today’s most pressing environmental challenges reEarth has released an Action Plan to tackle critical environmental challenges in The Bahamas.
A first-of-its-kind in The Bahamas, reEarth hopes that this document will act as the foundation to continued learning and leadership in the realm of environmental protection going forwards.
“A Living Future” represents an analysis of critical environmental challenges facing The Bahamas. It attempts to present practical solutions that can be achieved if there is the political will and leadership. Energy, water, food, transparency, declining ocean health, unsustainable resource management, all threaten the security of the present, and endanger future generations.
The agenda relies on reports and studies conducted on energy, fishing, climate change, and water resources with contributions from The Nature Conservancy, The Bahamas Humane Society and from citizens.
“A Living Future” was compiled to highlight the environment on which we all depend. It is intended to look at the environment in a comprehensive and integral part of how we develop - to engage politicians and the citizenry in a dynamic evolving discussion that recognizes the fundamental value of our natural assets and acts to police and protect them as the precious resources they are.
While it is up to government to enact and enforce, it also depends heavily on the Bahamian citizen to demand the protection and support government decisions for the protection of the environment.
