Our oceans and coasts are more than ever at risk. Through the Blue Solutions project, four leading environment, conservation and development institutions combined their efforts to develop and bring together innovative marine and coastal management approaches and policy advice – focusing on holistic solutions for a sustainable use of marine and coastal resources. By collating best practices, improving methods, enhancing capacity and fostering knowledge exchange, action was being supported at local, sub-national, national, regional and global levels. The aim is that healthy and productive marine and coastal biodiversity will continue to benefit human well-being for generations to come.
