TUESDAY 1st MARCH 2022

This global event is taking place over four days, and will bring together a very broad cross-section of the ocean community, from businesses to scientists, government, investors, and civil society. It will feature six industry tracks: shipping, fishing, aquaculture, energy, tourism, and plastics.

 

The 9th annual World Ocean Summit will feature six industry tracks focusing on:

1. shipping
2. fishing
3. aquaculture
4. energy
5. tourism, and 
6. plastics


This is the nub of a blue growth agenda, including deep sea mining and biotech.

Speakers will provide reality-checks on how their industries are progressing towards 2030 targets, and what needs to happen next.

High-level plenary sessions will address cross-industry topics including ocean finance, ocean governance, and ocean restoration solutions. Speakers will discuss the finance gap, assess new technologies and highlight successful initiatives that are beginning to make an impact on ocean health.

The panel of speakers Tuesday 1st March 2022, provided some very interesting aspects of financing the change to zero carbon shipping, where it is by no means clear what fuels will prevail, and how aggressive the IMO will be in setting targets. Concessional finance might include a tie in with carbon taxes and R&D innovation funding - or even scrappage.
