Regional action across boundaries, actors, and sectors is key to conservation and sustainable use of the ocean. Sweden is stepping up its engagement by funding the Marine Regions Forum – a dialogue and learning platform for the world’s marine regions in support of ocean governance.
A second workshop dedicated to the role of marine regions in the recovery from COVID-19 took place on Wednesday 6 October, assessing current regional initiatives and discuss conditions for a sustainable blue recovery of marine regions, including through enhanced regional collaboration.
A summary report is available here.
This online workshop builds on the Marine Regions Forum 2019 and the January 2021 webinar Ocean governance and COVID-19 – Building resilience for marine regions.
