Santo Domingo.-  The Dominican Government on Monday announced it will present in the Copenhagen Climatic Change Summit, the Caribbean Biological Corridor, an initiative designed with Cuba and Haiti to bolster environmental, social, economic and cultural projects in the region.

The Biological Corrido is a linear geographic space which links landscapes, ecosystems, habitats and culture in the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Cuba, and supported by the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP).

Environment minister Jaime David Fernandez, who will travel to Copenhagen, called the initiative “the only multinational project on climatic change with shared responsibility between three nations."

The corridor establishes a special category to 61 protected areas, which facilitates investments aimed at human development, specially those which promote the reduction of poverty, improve the quality of life, education, and which recover zones of high human impact.

In a statement the Environment Ministry said with the Corridor’s presentation, Dominican Republic sets out to promote joint initiatives to restrain the effects of climatic change in the Caribbean.

Is this the same Jaime David that initially blessed the "Cementera in Los Hiatises"? If so, that POLITICO has no credibility ! He has betrayed his people and country as Enviromental Czar of the DR.

sounds as if there will be broad support for this from everybody but the US. Undoubtedly Cuba's environmental footprint is very low and best practice needs to spread throughout the region. Its a good vision but much work will be need to put it into practice.

Mucho Loco,

You are so right....we should emulate everything Cuban, including GDP, repressive government, democratic elections, freedom of speech and assembly; freedom of religion; privilege to own a yippeta; privilege to own and use a cell phone; privilege to own a home; etc.

Anybody admiring the Cuban system is welcome to immediately emigrate to such wonderful place. Mucho Loco, hope you'll be first one, soon followed by VivaCuba and a few other notable ones.
MJEV.

Gloma - Cuba isn't perfect, but they have some good points. For example, my sister arrived at her hotel room only to realized she forgot her purse at the poolside. She went to the front desk to report it missing as the manager walked over with the employee who found it. My sister was asked to go through the pursue to see if anything was stolen. To her surprise, everything was there including US cash and a very expensive camera. She tipped the girl $20 later for her honesty.

That would not happen in the Dominican Republic...

Cuba uses low energy TV's and lots of bicycles - what's wrong with that?
http://www.brasschecktv.com/page/197.html
You need a low energy sustainable life style........I am creating a low energy lifestyle here - no need to go to Cuba!
Glo wants a declining quality of life......
Above is a good presentation but Glo has closed his mind a long time ago and is the proverbial lemming heading for the ocean!
DR is leading the World with this new initiative! A great forward thinking country! There is a legacy of self sufficiency and local agricultural production.
