Promoting action to build resilient and sustainable island communities

Municipality of Cozumel

Why have you joined the Global Island Partnership?

The Municipality of Cozumel is off the eastern coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. The Municipality of Cozumel, with leadership of the Mayor Perla Cecilia Tun Pech, has joined GLISPA to work together on island resilience. “Cozumel has been working a lot on its sustainable and resilience strategy at the local and national level and GLISPA provides the international islands platform to achieve together what we can't get individually. Together we are stronger. GLISPA is an international platform for sharing, learning and improving on island issues, that is why Cozumel believes [GLISPA] is the perfect platform to learn about island issues and solutions, and share our experiences to help other islands to identify and reach individual and collective solutions.”
