Clean and rich oceans are prerequisites for a sustainable ocean economy. Future value creation depends on a healthy marine environment and biodiversity in the ocean. How can governments and business work together to ensure that future generations can continue to rely on the oceans for food and sustainable use of its resources?
The conference brings together representatives from government and the private sector to present some of the challenges our oceans are facing and some of the solutions they are working on.
