Nadia Ahmad PhotoNadia Ahmad, IGLP alum, would like to share her recent publication “The Tropics Exploited: Risk Preparedness and Corporate Social Responsibility in Offshore Energy Development,” which was published in the Texas A&M Law Review.

ABSTRACT: Soaring energy demands and increasing technological innovation have led to the rapid exploitation of offshore oil and gas exploration and development. This article discusses elements of risk preparedness and corporate social responsibility in the context of the underwater natural gas pipeline in the Eastern Caribbean and the exploration of Florida’s potential offshore energy reserves. The article posits an agenda for managing the exploitation of natural resources through sustainable development principles.
