State of The Gulf of Mexico Summit 2006

Source: http://www.stateofthegulf.org/ (30 Sep. 2005)
The Gulf of Mexico is the most economically productive body of water within the territories of the United States and Mexico. Tourism, oil and gas, fisheries, and marine shipping annually generate billions of dollars of economic activity. From the founding of our countries, dynamic population centers have grown and flourished in the coastal areas of the Gulf of Mexico and the trend is for accelerated growth in these ecologically rich areas on the Gulf coast. It is incumbent upon today’s environmental stewards to ensure that the Gulf of Mexico remains a dynamic, healthy, and productive ecosystem. We can do this only through awareness, education, and proactive management. Yesterday, today and tomorrow, the Gulf of Mexico is a vital resource for sustaining quality of life in the United States and Mexico.

The Summit's purpose is to:

* Insert the state of the Gulf of Mexico into the international spotlight.
* Expand awareness of the socioeconomic and ecological value of the Gulf of Mexico and its importance to a sustainable desired quality of life.
* Build partnerships for proactive management.
* Establish a strategy for ensuring the ecological and socioeconomic health and productivity of the Gulf of Mexico.
