The Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) announced this week that it has joined the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) as a member.

The foundation, created in 2005 by former U.S. President Bill Clinton, works to find ways to solve major challenges worldwide.

“We are intrigued with the opportunities within CGI to address economic development for startup operations in the aquaculture community,” said GAA Executive Director Wally Stevens. “The work of the GAA and its foundation, the Responsible Aquaculture Foundation, are a good fit with the work being undertaken by the other members of the CGI community.”

The CGI works with corporate leaders, governments, NGOs and individuals to address issues such as obesity, global health, opportunities for women and girls, climate change and other challenges.

CGI, an initiative of the Clinton Foundation, is dedicated to turning ideas into action. The CGI community allows members to share best practices, forge partnerships and leverage resources to affect measurable change.
