The regionally-focused World Ocean Summit Asia-Pacific agenda will provide the platform for nuanced conversation and tailored discussion to catalyse the blue economy in the Asia-Pacific.
The summit will convene 100 speakers and 1000 participants virtually over five days. Dedicated tracks on shipping, marine renewable energy, plastics, aquaculture and fishing will provide insight focused on the Asia-Pacific. Plenary sessions will centre on pressing concerns for the ocean and cities, and seek solutions for climate change mitigation and the dangerous decline of biodiversity in the region.
A full track dedicated to finance will bring together executives from across the investment community. Speakers will share experience of innovative blue-finance mechanisms to maximise the direction of mainstream finance towards the sustainable blue economy.
Our aim is to identify how innovation and collaboration within the region are affecting change and seek to reframe the Asia-Pacific’s relationship with the ocean, generating momentum to map the steps to increased economic prosperity and ocean restoration.
