Member organizations of the Industrial Shrimp Action Network (ISA Net) participated at the Global Biodiversity Forum (GBF) 13 and the Ramsar COP7 held in San Jose, Costa Rica from May 7 to May 18, 1999 and at the World Meeting of the NGOs, Local Communities and Indigenous Peoples that also gathered in San Jose on May 7-9.
At the GBF, the presentations given by ISA Net's members (from Ecuador, Honduras, Bangladesh, Thailand, USA and UK) were well received. As a result, the GBF endorsed all the recommendations that were proposed. For those interested in this issue, the complete set of recommendations is available in the WRM web page.
