The Objective of this program is to implement a bottom-up strategy to create a Coastal Resilient Marine Life Protection Act for Chile, for the sustainable development of the Chilean coastal zone, as a roadmap to achieve coastal-marine international climate goals by 2030.

This challenge requires to create a 10-year science-based social process, that underlies the importance of building trust in the territories and the scientific community, integrating local knowledge into institutional decision-making processes and improving coordination in the application of public instruments. Through concrete capacity building collaboration and learning curves from California’s Marine Life Protection Act (MLPA) and Coastal Act experiences -- Chile has the opportunity to design and implement its own innovative, participative, science and community-based models, especially considering the geographic similarities between both places.
