The conference aims at gathering Ministers, representatives from the industry, civil society, public authorities and research to discuss the ways to mitigate and deal with impacts of climate change on ocean conservation and to explore opportunities the ocean offers for zero CO2 energy production.

The conference will address the following topics:
