Washington, DC -
11/30/2009 - The Pew Charitable Trusts today announced a partnership with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation to support its conservation work. H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco made this alliance public during a speech at the National Press Club on global warming and environment to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Antarctic Treaty.
“The oceans and the forests play an important role in climate change mitigation. It is through strong institutional partnerships that together we can improve this situation,” said H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco.
The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and Pew have a number of shared policy goals and anticipate working together to preserve Canada’s Boreal Forest ,which is one of the world’s remaining carbon-rich, old-growth forests, and to press for measures to stop the destruction of the world’s oceans.
“There is much promise to an alliance among our two organizations, as we each have a base in a key continent, expertise and a history of advancing a strong conservation agenda,” said Joshua Reichert, managing director of the Pew Environment Group. “We are enthusiastic about partnering with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation to tackle issues that plague the land and the sea.”
