News: Global High Level Conference on Sustainable Blue Economy & the Mediterranean side event

Kenya is set to host the first ever Global High-Level Conference on Sustainable Blue Economy. The Conference will be held at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre in Nairobi on 26-28 November 2018. Over 4,000 participants from around the world will meet to learn how to build a blue economy that i) harnesses the potential of our oceans, seas, lakes and rivers to improve the lives of all, particularly people in developing states, women, youth and Indigenous peoples; ii) leverages the latest innovations, scientific advances and best practices to build prosperity while conserving our waters for future generations. In this framework, a joint Mediterranean side event prepared by the Barcelona Convention Secretariat, including its Plan Bleu Regional Activity Centre, the Union for the Mediterranean Secretariat, and WWF Med will take place on 28 November (9-11 AM)
