Why

We depend on our the ocean, and the ocean depends on us. It is crucial that we support the development and adoption of new sustainable ocean solutions, because ocean wealth can only be achieve in conjunction with ocean health; because the ocean economy can be instrumental to post-covid recovery; because the potential for blue growth in Africa is huge but requires people to come together; because we need to inspire more entrepreneur, entice more private investors and catalyze more partnerships... Ocean Innovation Africa is a platform that showcases African ocean-impact initiatives and brings together international changemakers for the growth of a sustainable ocean economy.
