Who We Are

GCEEF, The Greater Caribbean Energy & Environment Foundation, Inc., a 501 C-3 tax-deductible NGO serving the Caribbean, Africa, Asia for over 32 years in all areas of development: Environment, Microfinance, and Agriculture.

 

What GCEEF Has Accomplished Over The Years:

Fish rehabilitation programs by seagrass restoration in Jamaica, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, India, USA. hundreds of acres have been restored. The methods, pollution situations, species, and animal communities which return have all been studied.

Development of a new successful technology for the restoration of seagrass.

Training youth from all nations, (especially culturally disadvantaged) how to heal the environment. Development of a new technology for using artificial reefs for breeding rather than aggregating fish in already over-fished areas.

Coastal Resource Maps: Bahamas, Jamaica, Philippines.
Workshops within developed and developing nations on coastal rehabilitation and sustainability with citizensand NGO's, and governments,

Extensive research on prevention of damage from oil spills, from hazardous wastes, from sewage, from turbidity and other disturbances such as toxic substances.

Workshop with U.S. Congress, clearing house for the future, on "Political Will for a Sustainable Future".

Oil spill clean-up protection: Florida, Indonesia, Jamaica and other Caribbean nations. Workshops for International Development and funding agencies, "Environmental problems in third world coastal areas."

Workshops for newly industrializing national Energy Ministers on Environmental Protection.

Microfinance design, management, evaluation and start-up.

Our Current Work
1. Sustainability in Action: The Ecological Balance Between Industrial Development & Ecology Carried Out By Texas Seagrasses Restoration.

2. HAITI EARTHQUAKE DISASTER RELIEF

3. 
The Future of the Western Hemisphere Summary.doc. The Western Hemisphere, The Next Fifty Years, a Report to the International Club of Rome and the Governments of the thirty nations of the Western Hemisphere.

4. Oil Spill in the Gulf.doc. The Gulf Oil Spill, Damage Analysis and Mitigation.

5. Measuring sequestered carbon in coastal vegetation (seagrasses and mangroves). 

6. Gulf of Mexico Carbon Studies.
We have just completed a study from Florida to Mexico of sequestered carbon showing massive losses over the last century in the Gulf of Mexico. The Gulf of Mexico USA portion contains about 51 Tg carbon . Restored seagrass stores substantially more carbon than does natural seagrass, showing that conservation of seagrass should occur and large efforts to restore seagrasses where they have previously been should occur. Sponsored by Commission for Environmental Cooperation in North America.

Restoration of Pollution-Killed seagrass in Texas Estuaries.

Estuaries in Texas have had initial areas restored with success and fisheries recolonization.
