BCI Publication: Transformational Opportunities for People, Ocean and Planet

Fresh off the Press!

We are delighted to announce BCI’s publication of a compelling set of Transformational Opportunities for People, Ocean and Planet. This product of 60+ global experts proposes over 40 of the most compelling opportunities to use the power of the ocean to tackle climate change and sustainably meet humanity’s needs.

This main publication comes along with six separate and more detailed papers focused on ocean-based transformational opportunities in Health & Well-being, Food & Nutrition, Marine Energy and Transportation, Mineral and Genetic Resources, Biodiversity and Nature-based Solutions, and Sustainable Tourism.

With recommendations as audacious as a high seas marine protected area; as vital as human dietary shifts towards sustainable food from the sea; as inspirational as an international deep sea station; as timely as a “FAIR Ocean” effort in inclusive, equitable ocean exploration; and as empowering as a global “Healthy Blue Communities Network”; these TOPS are a compelling agenda to stimulate and guide our collective action.

Check out the Transformational Opportunities page on this website to access all documents.
