However, the Gulf and its communities face unprecedented challenges due to climate change and other human pressures.As a result, the solutions for protecting the Gulf and its communities are constantly evolving, driven by the need for innovative approaches that ensure the long-term sustainability and well-being of both the environment and the people who call it home.
