The world’s oceans and seas make up nearly 75% of the planet’s surface and are home to many resources. It’s important to use these resources sustainably, especially in an age of climate change.

About the Civil Society Forum, security is critical to the blue economy. Without coast guards, pollution leads to poisoning and death of marine life, which endangers lives in coastal communities.

The illegal harvesting of aquatic resources due to lack of security infrastructure deprives communities of vital development resources. Global illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing is depriving countries of economic opportunities.

This is worth an estimated 26 million tons of fish valued at $10 to $23 billion USD annually.

The critical role of CSOs in the blue economy agenda Civil society organizations (CSOs) have a critical role to play in the blue economy agenda, including: mobilizing community voices managing sustainable projects exercising stewardship through legal frameworks and instruments CSOs’ roles must shift from passive reliance on government and legal frameworks to actively implementing and monitoring them.

Civil society and communities who experience the impacts of environmental issues have an important voice that needs to be harnessed.

There is a need for civil society to engage in the governance of oceans, seas, lakes and rivers. CSOs have added value in the implementation of this ambitious international development agenda due to their: specific missions’ undeniable expertise longstanding experience firmly established community roots.

This Civil Society Forum allows collaboration and contribution to a blue economy that is: inclusively sustainable responsive to the rights and needs of the people.
