This year’s Conference closed with 410 commitments worth $16.35 billion across the 6 issue areas off the conference like for example offshore wind. Since 2014, the Our Ocean Conference has now mobilized more than 1,800 commitments worth approximately $108 billion.
Areas of action
The ocean gives us life. We rely on it for food, livelihoods, climate resilience and recreation. Ensuring the longevity of our planet’s life force requires decisive and collective action.
Our Ocean will focus on six Areas of Action, convening partners from across the globe to identify solutions to manage marine resources, increase the ocean’s resilience to climate change and safeguard its health for generations to come.
Commitments to deliver bold, measurable and impactful actions promoting and protecting ocean health are at the heart of Our Ocean. To date, there have been over a thousand commitments from governments, civil society and businesses in over 70 countries.
Our Ocean will continue to encourage partnerships and commitments and report on the progress and successes of commitments from previous years.
