Marine Regions Forum Conference 2023
The second Marine Regions Forum will takes place in the Western Indian Ocean region.
The Marine Regions Forum strives to support transformations toward integrated and collaborative ocean governance for marine regions by advancing multi-stakeholder dialogue, facilitating exchanges of good practices, and strengthening cooperation within and among marine regions. It aims to provide an informal space for joint learning and to support ocean action at the regional level and with interregional to global governance processes.
Strengthening ocean governance at the regional level offers opportunities to create joint visions and facilitate sharing capacities and aligning actions. The Marine Regions Forum strives to improve ocean action at three different scales:
(i) supporting progress within marine regions,
(ii) advancing dialogue across marine regions, and
(iii) giving regional ocean governance a voice in global processes.
By complementing existing processes, and disseminating emerging recommendations to the formal policy processes, the Marine Regions Forum supports the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG 14) and other relevant policy processes.
It will have both a regional and interregional focus.
