What did Sharif have to offer?

With the recent growth of the world’s economy, specifically the commercial fishing and aquaculture industries, it is of the utmost important that we emphasize the importance of establishing programs in support of sustainable marine and coastal management practices in countries and regions around the world. I have seen firsthand how we can interface multiple forms of media and communications tools in order to update, package and technically support programs in support of the sustainable ocean initiatives, and promote, at regional and federal levels of government, the importance of international environmental issues like the management of marine resources; the proper implementation of marine and coastal area management practices; the sustainable use of marine and coastal biodiversity; the rise of invasive species due to mariculture; and the identification of both ecologically and biologically significant species and areas. With past experience in public advocacy, industry stakeholder relations and sustainability program implementation, I have developed the capacity for evolving vision, strategy and tactical action plans aimed at achieving measurable results in the implementation of environmental policy and conservation practices at the individual and organizational level. Due to my past experience, I have seen firsthand how we can interface multiple forms of media and communications tools in order to update, package and technically support programs in support of the conservation of biodiversity, and promote, at local and state level, the importance of establishing habitat conservation and restoration processes and species protection programs throughout our communities.
