MERIDA — More than 150 academics, federal judges, environmentalists and environmental protection officials are participating in the 15th International Meeting on Environmental Law, which began on Wednesday October 4 at the Marist University and ends Friday October 6 at Hacienda Temozón.
It is the first time that Mérida has hosted this high level event that analyzes problems such as fishing, the environment, environmental justice and public policies focused on promoting sustainable fishing, combating overexploitation of fisheries, marine surveillance and other issues related to the defense of nature and the sea.
Kanan Kay Legal Director, Raziel Villegas Núñez, organizer of the meeting together with the president of the World League of Environmental Lawyers, Aquilino Vázquez García, reported that 150 to 180 specialists from 15 countries were registered and will include important academics, representatives non-governmental organizations, federal judges, Profepa officials and other officials or managers concerned about environmental legislation.
The inauguration of the event and the first day was held in the auditorium of the Marist University, but the second and third day of activities are taking place in the Hacienda Temozón.
Lawyer Villegas Núñez said that the XV International Meeting is the highest forum on environmental law and because of its plurality and high level of preparation of participants there is more freedom to expose problems and propose more real and concrete solutions.
Environmental lawyers advocate the protection of at least 20% of fisheries, the creation of marine refuges that restore overexploitation of species and the recognition of environmental law in the world because the laws now treat this legislation as administrative law.
The forum will address Yucatecan issues such as sea surveillance, overexploitation of marine species, illegal catching of sea cucumber, environmental insurance, repair of environmental damage and, in general, legal framework and environmental protection issues.
Villegas Núñez reported that the organizing committee chose Mérida as the venue for this event because of the problem it faces with the fisheries and it seemed interesting to know the panorama and vision of officials, environmentalists and jurists of this specialty of law.
During the high-level meeting the specialists will address environmental issues in Quintana Roo and Yucatan.
