Cicin-Sain named laureate for Haub Award for Environmental Diplomacy

Biliana Cicin-Sain, professor and director of the Gerard J. Mangone Center for Marine Policy at the University of Delaware, has been named the 2010 laureate by the jury for the Elizabeth Haub Award for Environmental Diplomacy.

The award has been given annually since 1998 by the International Council of Environmental Law and Pace University School of Law, which consider the most important diplomatic achievement in the field of environmental law and policy in the preceding year.

The jury cited Cicin-Sain's “outstanding contributions to the international efforts to preserve the world's oceans and the several international agreements related to them,” adding that, “This is especially important at a time when oceans and their fisheries are under such heavy stress from climate change, pollution, acidification, and unsustainable fishing practices.” (full article)
