Ocean Dialogues

Ocean Dialogues Ltd provides expert support to advance progressive ocean governance worldwide. We work collaboratively with governments, industry and scientists to develop and implement new approaches to ocean policy and management to address sustainable development and the Blue Economy. Current projects include developing National Ocean Policies and strategies for the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS) under the World Bank funded Caribbean Regional Oceanscape Project (CROP), along with research and consultancy in Scotland, Norway and across Europe on new governance for emerging sectors such as industrial seaweed harvesting, adapting to challenges such as climate change and ocean acidification, and the implementation of new tools such as marine spatial planning. Dialogue is central to dealing with the complex challenges of sustainable development, and Ocean Dialogues supports this by bridging between science, governments, policy makers, industry, NGOs and other stakeholders.
