Marine Pollution, Climate Change, Sustainable Fishing, Blue Economy
The Government of Liberia, Embassy of Sweden in Monrovia and Conservation International are proud to announce the Blue Oceans Conference to be held in Monrovia, Liberia the 18-21 of March 2019.
Oceans have been historically undervalued in Liberia, and across Africa more broadly, and the services that the oceans provide are often taken for granted. Conserving and enhancing these ecosystem services is a matter of managing human actions within the marine environment. The Blue Oceans Conference builds upon the momentum begun by the United Nations Oceans Conference and the recent Nairobi Sustainable Blue Economy Conference in creating opportunities for African countries and relevant stakeholders to understand the challenges associated with marine governance and sustainable development, specifically regarding climate change impacts, pollution, unsustainable fishing practices, economic opportunities, and maritime security.
From March 18 – March 21
