25 October 2010 18:15 - 19:45
The World Ocean Council is the international, cross-sectoral industry leadership alliance on ocean sustainability that is tackling the single most important factor affecting marine biodiversity - the way business is done in the marine environment. The ocean supports a wide range of uses - shipping, ports, fisheries, oil and gas, aquaculture, renewable energy, mining, tourism, desalination, dredging, etc. Maintaining ocean health and sustaining marine biodiversity requires responsible use and stewardship by all members of the diverse ocean business community. This side event will assemble a range of ocean industry representatives to address the role of private sector leadership and collaboration in engaging the CBD and addressing marine biodiversity challenges.
