Maldives participates in 2009 World Ocean Conference

The Maldives is currently participating in the World Ocean Conference 2009 (WOC 2009) being held in Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia.

The World Ocean Conference 2009 brings together over 100 participants including high-level government officials, multilateral agencies and business partners to develop a common understanding and firm commitment to address the impact of climate change on the state of the world’s oceans, and to increase understanding of the role of the oceans in determining the rate of global climatic change.

The World Ocean Conference 2009 will focus on three major themes that comprise of; implications of climate change for the world’s oceans and coastal communities, the role of the oceans in climate change phenomena, and the need for mitigation and adaptation measures to climate change. The WOC 2009 is expected to create a more aligned global vision and commitments from participating governments and institutions to work together to improve marine resource management.

Representatives at the conference will also work towards the Manado Declaration, intended to help save the oceans from further destruction and increase the role of the ocean in reducing climate change. Attending delegations while deliberating on the Manado Declaration outlined that the global negotiations on climate change should include the Ocean’s dimension during the COP-15 meeting due to take place in Copenhagen later this year.
