Ocean Symposium attendees

During the two days of the International Symposium on Capacity Building for Sustainable Oceans, community leaders and representatives from international organizations, UN agencies, academic institutions and governments gathered to discuss how building and maintaining capacity throughout local communities is integral in achieving ocean health. The final report includes the main findings from the Symposium as well as detailed information from each session. These findings will serve as a starting point for the Nippon Foundation to consider developing a new program to support capacity building for achieving ocean health.
