The ocean has been recognized as a priority policy agenda, and blue economy is promoted as a way to bolster conservation and the sustainable use of marine and coastal resources, while at the same time pursuing sustainable development, improving livelihoods, and empowering local communities. The speakers will address lessons and future perspectives to promote blue economy, particularly in the small island states and communities in the Pacific.
