From 13-16 March, 2018, the Blue Solutions Initiative will host a 3.5-day fair in Thailand to foster international knowledge exchange and to accelerate action towards combatting climate change in the marine and coastal realm in Southeast Asia.
Under the topic “Facing the rising tide: sustainable ways to combat climate change for resilient coastal communities and healthy marine ecosystems” practitioners can contribute specific challenges they face. The event will connect practitioners, policy makers and potential funders interested in supporting climate change initiatives to accelerate action and implementation.
We are currently reaching out to marine practitioners in Southeast Asia to call for specific climate change related challenge they face in the marine realm. We will then invite selected applicants, resource persons, solution providers and donors with the objective to accelerate the implementation of projects, to obtain support for new initiatives and to facilitate networking.
The deadline for applications from marine practitioners (“solution seekers”) is November 19, 2017.
