Ensuring healthy and productive waters

The effects of climate change and pollution have already caused damage to aquatic ecosystems all over the world. Blue economy initiatives mitigate these effects by minimizing pollution and promoting sustainable agricultural practices. By reducing pollution in our oceans, we can keep our marine resources safe from harm and protect ourselves from further effects of climate change.

Participants will discover:

  • How climate change impacts oceans
  • Concrete actions the international community can take to stop the flow of plastics and marine waste
  • Developing strategies and best practices to minimize pollution such as “polluter pays” principles
  • Integrated Water Resources Management approaches to improving water quality
  • How to turn waste management into business opportunities for women and youth
  • How to support small-scale businesses as they transfer to sustainable practices
