Theme: Managing and sustaining marine life, conservation and sustainable economic activities

Ensuring healthy and productive waters

Our aquatic ecosystems provide us with food, medicine and other resources we need to survive. By using these resources unsustainably, we risk further harming marine ecosystems and contributing to climate change. We can prevent this by enacting blue economy strategies to manage and conserve these resources sustainably for future generations. This keeps marine environments safe from further harm and stops overexploitation of these vitally important resources.

Participants will discover:

  • The impacts of human activities on marine life
  • How aquatic resources contribute to the global economy
  • How marine ecosystems are responding to climate change
  • The importance of scientific research and collaboration with communities
  • Effective public engagement and education strategies in raising awareness and action
  • Innovative financial incentives such as green and blue bonds and debt-for-nature swaps
