Organizations that seek to protect Quintana Roo’s reefs and promote responsible fishing will gather at the General Assembly of the Kanan Kay Alliance December 2-3 at Playa del Carmen’s Petit Lafitte Hotel.
Representatives of more than 40 institutions that integrate the Alliance will attend this event to share their achievements regarding their 2015 work plan and define the plan for 2016. Attendees will also be trained on how to measure collective impact of multi-sectoral initiatives such as the Alliance and will inquire collectively into the Alliance’s future.
The Kanan Kay Alliance is a collaborative intersectoral initiative with the common objective to establish an effective network of fishing sanctuaries that protect 20 percent of Quintana Roo’s territorial waters. The name Kanan Kay means “guardian of fish” in the Mayan language.
Currently, the Alliance has 41 institutional members that represent government fishing and environmental agencies, fishing cooperatives, organizations that focus on marine conservation, investigative centers and philanthropic foundations.
The activities implemented by the Alliance’s members are focused on the coastal marine ecosystems of Quintana Roo, which include expanses of sea grass, mangrove forests and the world’s second most important coral barrier reef, the Mesoamerican Reef System.
The Petit Laffitte Hotel is located on the Carretera Cancún – Chetumal at km 296, Playa del Carmen. Accommodation for meeting attendees are available at the Amarte Maroma Hotel (15 minutes drive from Petit Laffitte). Those interested in attending the meeting are requested to contact Natali Goldman at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (0152) 998 2 273811.
