The report is based on a pro bono survey provided to the Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice in connection with its Coral Reef Project. The objective of the Coral Reef Project is to produce a best practices manual on coral reef protection to be used in efforts to advocate for more effective laws to protect coral reefs in certain Latin American countries.
The report highlights legislation relevant to the conservation and protection of reef areas, biodiversity protection, environmental protection, coastal development, commercial marine tourism and shipping. It also provides analysis on the implementation and enforcement mechanisms of the legislation.
