Regional Forum on Solutions for Oceans, Coasts and Human Wellbeing in Asia and the Pacific
Cebu City, Philippines
The four-day Regional Forum provides a platform for practitioners and decision makers from Asia and the Pacific to exchange experiences and ‘solutions’ in marine and coastal management and governance. The aim is to enable mutual learning and support knowledge transfer, and to inspire practitioners and decision-makers to take action towards the implementation of the Aichi Biodiversity Targets of the CBD Strategic Plan in the marine and coastal realm.
The event is organized by the Blue Solutions Initiative, the Lighthouse Foundation and the World Future Council in cooperation with the Sustainable Ocean Initiative of the Secretariat of the CBD, and is hosted by the Government of the Philippines. The forum and its solution exchange will focus on three key themes:
- Local marine area management and governance
- Ecosystem approach to marine and fisheries management
- Ecosystem-based disaster risk reduction and adaptation
