About the conference
There has never been a more critical time for oceans and marine life than now. The threats of overfishing, climate change and pollution are expected to cause a cumulative loss of at least USD $428 billion to the global economy. As a step to combat this issue, the United Nations came up with the Sustainable Development Goals (‘SDG’) under which SDG 14.6 specifically deals with the issue of sustainable fishing and ocean management. In a bid to fulfil the mandate of the SDGs by 2030 as aimed, international organizations and countries globally seem to work together.
