Enhancing capacity development in the TAC Region 2000 1334 Ocean Decade

Lead institution:

UNAM – Mexico

During the TAC Region Webinars capacity building was identified at the forefront and a crosscutting subject. It was recognized that developing local expertise with lasting benefits can lead to transformative change in CD.

It was also recognized that the lack of access to knowledge, equipment and opportunities are relevant barriers to achieving regional sustainable development. Implementing blue economy policies is recognized as critical to achieving the SDGs and delivering smart, sustainable, and inclusive growth. It was identified during the Kick-Off Conference that the region must develop local initiatives related to raise awareness on blue economy knowledge, and that promoting engagement among stakeholders and local expertise is relevant to address this need. It is critical to create an enabling environment for experience exchange on ocean public policy targeting local blue economy initiatives, and to enhance knowledge about the blue economy (including deep-sea uses) in the Region.

This Project is hosted by the Ocean Decade Programme Joint Exploration of the Twilight Zone Ocean Network (JETZON)
