Sharing knowledge and expertise from a broad range of stakeholders is a crucial element of implementing a blue-economy approach. In this spirit, the PROBLUE Global Engagement Forum has been established to convene a wide range of stakeholders on blue-economy priority issues - to help build relationships and identify opportunities for collaborative and coordinated interventions in countries.
This inaugural Forum event will be held on Sunday, May 28, 2023 from 1:00pm to 4:30pm on the sidelines of the INC-2 negotiations, with a focus on Abandoned, Lost or otherwise Discarded Fishing Gear (ALDFG) and marine pollution. More details can be found on the second tab (above). Note that pre-registration is a requirement for these events. If you are interested in joining, please reach out to the contact provided on this page.
Administered by the World Bank, PROBLUE is a multi-donor trust fund that supports the sustainable and integrated development of marine and coastal resources in healthy oceans.
