    The 3rd World Small Scale Fisheries Congress (WSFC) is a transdisciplinary forum for anyone interested in small-scale fisheries to participate in an interactive discussion about the future of the world's small-scale fisheries. 

    The overall goal of the Congress is to facilitate opportunities for researchers, students, young professionals, practitioners, fishers and fishers’ organizations, environmental groups, and policymakers to share information about all aspects of small-scale fisheries and to formulate action plans and capacity development programs to support the implementation of the SSF Guidelines.

    Since 2014, the Our Ocean Conferences have invited ocean leaders to commit to change, to transforming our shared challenges into opportunities for cooperation, innovation and entrepreneurship.

    Previous conferences have seen a tremendous wave of commitments and billions of euros pledged. Our Ocean 2018 will continue to focus on six main areas of action: marine protected areas, sustainable fisheries, marine pollution, climate change, sustainable blue economy and maritime security.

    In OOC 2018, nearly 1000 participants are expected to attend, including heads of states and government, foreign, economist, environment and fisheries ministers and other established and up-and-coming ocean leaders in government, business, finance, science, philanthropy, NGOs and civil society. Young and cutting edge innovators and entrepreneurs are to share the stage with well-known and dynamic global readers in ocean conservation.

    The Conference of the Parties (COP) is the governing body of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), and advances implementation of the Convention through the decisions it takes at its periodic meetings.

    To date the Conference of the Parties has held 12 ordinary meetings, and one extraordinary meeting (the latter, to adopt the Biosafety Protocol, was held in two parts). From 1994 to 1996, the Conference of the Parties held its ordinary meetings annually. Since then these meetings have been held somewhat less frequently and, following a change in the rules of procedure in 2000, will now be held every two years.
