Description

The ​Gulf ​of ​Mexico ​will ​be ​the ​focal ​point ​for ​the ​largest ​restoration ​efforts ​($20+ ​billion) ​ever ​conceived ​for ​the ​Gulf ​of ​Mexico. ​It ​will ​consume ​the ​northern ​(USA) ​Gulf’s ​coastal ​policy ​and ​politics, ​state ​and ​federal ​resource ​management, ​and ​conservation ​activities ​for ​at ​least ​fifteen ​years ​as ​the ​settlement ​agreement ​plays ​out. ​A ​key ​issue ​will ​be ​an ​effective ​adaptive ​management ​approach ​built ​on ​sound ​science ​and ​coordinated ​monitoring ​to ​learn ​from ​mistakes ​and ​build ​on ​successes ​of ​early ​restoration ​efforts.

The ​timing ​of ​this ​Summit ​provides ​unprecedented ​opportunity ​to ​effectively ​address ​some ​of ​the ​many ​issues ​we ​face ​in ​bringing ​the ​Gulf ​together ​in ​common ​cause. ​The ​Gulf ​has ​never ​before ​had ​the ​resources ​to ​address ​fundamental ​issues ​affecting ​its ​health ​and ​productivity. ​Gulf ​science ​has ​never ​been ​better ​positioned ​to ​support ​decision-makers ​and ​resource ​managers ​in ​addressing ​resource ​priorities ​and ​prepare ​for ​future ​ones. ​The ​potential ​of ​international ​cooperation ​between ​the ​USA, ​Mexico ​and ​Cuba ​to ​work ​together ​on ​a ​Gulfwide ​scale ​has ​never ​been ​so ​real.

The ​State ​of ​the ​Gulf ​Summit ​2017 ​will ​address ​these ​challenges ​by ​focusing ​on ​the ​following ​questions:

How ​will ​we ​assess ​change ​at ​the ​broadest ​Gulf ​ecosystem ​level ​to ​both ​assess ​the ​efficacy ​of ​restoration ​actions ​and ​identify ​potential ​issues ​beyond ​restoration?
 ​
How ​do ​we ​begin ​to ​effectively ​link ​environmental ​health, ​human ​health, ​and ​economic ​health ​and ​well-being ​to ​assure ​a ​healthier ​and ​more ​sustainable ​future?
 ​ ​ ​ ​
How ​do ​we ​effectively ​engage ​with ​our ​international ​partners, ​Mexico ​and ​Cuba, ​to ​address ​issues ​to ​assure ​the ​health ​and ​productivity ​of ​the ​Large ​Marine ​Ecosystem ​that ​is ​the ​Gulf ​of ​Mexico?
