Oceans and the Blue Economy

Lead member: University of Western Australia

We are reliant on the oceans for food security, commercial and socio-cultural activities as well as ecosystem services; yet our oceans are increasingly under pressure.  Furthermore, a growing number of countries include blue economy goals in their national agenda.  Whilst there is considerable potential for wealth from the oceans through shipping and transport, fisheries, energy and tourism, utilisation of the ocean and marine resources must be balanced with sustainable management and conservation.  This will involve innovative solutions including cooperation between different sectors and collaboration across disciplines.  This theme explores the challenges facing the oceans and how MNU members can work together to contribute to maintaining healthy oceans and achieving blue economy goals.

    After reading your blog post, I browsed your website a bit and noticed you aren’t ranking nearly as well in Google as you could be. I possess a handful of blogs myself, and I think you should take a look at “seowebsitetrafficnettools”, just google it. You’ll find it’s a very lovely SEO tool that can bring you a lot more visitors and improve your ranking. They have more than 30+ tools only 20$. Very cheap right? Keep up the quality posts

    Useful info. Fortunate me I discovered your site unintentionally, and I’m shocked why this coincidence did not happened in advance! I bookmarked it.
