GOMA to meet on Governor’s Action Plan
MOBILE, Ala. — The Gulf of Mexico Alliance (GOMA) will convene to address the health of the Gulf Region in Mobile, Ala. this week, drawing a diverse array of representatives from the five Gulf States, Washington D.C., and Mexico.
From August 4-6, participants will gather to discuss implementation of the 2009 Governor’s Action Plan, which outlines key steps and priorities for the Alliance over the next five years. Signed and supported by each of the five Gulf State governors, the plan aims to enhance community resilience, promote environmental education, support habitat restoration, reduce nutrient inputs to coastal waters, mitigate impacts to water quality and identify and characterize Gulf ecosystems.
The second Governor’s Action Plan for Healthy & Resilient Coast builds upon the successes of the last and sets specific actions to be undertaken for a healthy economy and ecology for the Gulf of Mexico.
