World Ocean Summit: World Ocean Initiative

The Economist Group’s World Ocean Initiative sponsors these annual conferences (since 2013).  They are working to enable transition to a “blue” sustainable ocean economy, using research and publication on three vectors:

  • finance
  • governance
  • innovation

They have also recently published a useful downloadable pdf, the Coastal Governance Index, which tracks governments’ stewardship of their coasts.
