APPLIED SOLUTIONS

As leaders and stakeholders we need to better understand the challenges that ocean change presents. But we also need to find solutions – to work together to devise innovative and practical strategies for the way ahead.

The Ocean Risk Summit brings together participants from politics, policy-making, finance, environmental management, technology, risk management, law and regulation to examine the way forward and to identify the opportunities as well as challenges.

The summit will examine:

  • How the ocean’s physical and biological changes affect the political, economic, environmental, social, technological, legal and regulatory landscapes
  • How stakeholders can address the impacts of ocean change, encourage more sustainable planning and generate new solutions
  • How a multi-sectoral approach can help drive understanding of ocean risk and support science, exploration and the advancement of knowledge
