The Economic and Social Development Council of Santo Domingo (Codessd) informed that it is working on a project to solve the problem of sargassum, which considerably affects Dominican beaches.
The information was offered by the president of Codessd, Samuel Sena, who also said that the Dominican Republic has not escaped the regional problem represented by sargassum.
“As an organization, we are working in the search for an effective solution to eliminate sargassum from our beaches, while at the same time looking for a use for this marine algae,” he said.
He argued that “every year we see how sargassum increases in proportion and in the places it impacts. From Codessd we see with great concern how this scourge affects the economic and social development of the areas where it is present”.
He indicated that the entity he presides is aware that these algae affect the environment, health and tourism development.
He said that the entity will seek to present the project to the Dominican government and international organizations.
