PM Chastanet talks Ocean Economy at Davos

Prime Minister Allen Chastanet made a presentation on behalf of Small Islands at the World Economic Forum’s The Davos Agenda.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the fragility of ocean economies, most acutely felt in Small Island Developing States (SIDS). Yet these states encompass valuable ocean assets about 2,000 times the size of their land masses.

From ocean finance to coastal resilience measures, what policies, practices and partnerships are needed to build back a more just and resilient ocean economy?

This session is associated with the following projects and initiatives of the World Economic Forum: Friends of Ocean Action, and the Sustainable Development Investment Partnership (SDIP).
