AIDA, a pioneer organization working on environmental protection in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities and critically endangered habitats, is working to support the debate concerning the future of the world's fisheries and find solutions to the impacts of harmful fisheries subsidies that contribute to the high rate of fisheries depletion. This project focuses on several countries in Latin America, using governance strategies and advocacy work to push for better policies and their enforcement. The overall goal is to revamp the way fisheries subsidies are granted in these countries with a focus on promoting livelihoods among coastal communities and ecosystem protection and conservation.
