Sustainable Ocean Leadership Institute (SOLI) Preview Workshop:
Join industry, government and NGO leaders from around the world to learn how to address the impact of climate change on seafood production.
Sunday 9 June | 6:30 – 18:30
Register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org workshop price is US$199. Price covers food and transportation for the day. Registration and fees are separate from the SeaWeb Seafood Summit.
Overview: Seafood production in Southeast Asia is challenged by a need to support the immediate needs of local people and realising sustainable fisheries development. There is significant tension between these two challenges, which are now being exacerbated by the impact of climate change. However, by understanding these challenges it may be possible for leaders in the global seafood industry to identify solutions and trade-offs to facilitate permanent cultural change that meets the needs of local communities.
The purpose of the SOLI workshop is to give you a preview the SOLI program and to deepen your understanding of how climate change is effecting seafood production in the region.
