Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO

UN Agency

This brief is the outcome of a COVID-19 Task Force initiated by the Action Platform for Sustainable Ocean Business to help address some of the challenges facing the blue economy through science-based solutions.

  • Background

Over three meetings (organized by United Nations Global Compact) focusing on three areas of the blue economy, science and industry partners, as well as policy representatives, discussed ways in which mutual collaboration and scaling-up joint action could enhance the resilience of the ocean economy and contribute towards a more sustainable future.

This brief aims to give an overview of how resilience can be enhanced through collaboration, and serves as a reminder of the importance of convening cross-disciplinary stakeholders to address the need for a clean, healthy and productive ocean, while concurrently growing sustainable ocean businesses, to build back better.
