(Conference: 29-30 September 2014) The World Ocean Council (WOC) will convene a Business Forum on Ocean Policy and Planning in New York, NY U.S.A on 29-30 September 2014. Designed for the Ocean Business Community (OBC), the Forum continues the World Ocean Council’s Business Forum Series and builds upon the successful 2013 Sustainable Ocean Summit. The Forum will feature an optional field trip on 28 September to learn about coastal business response and recovery following Hurricane Sandy and how this is affecting policy and planning.
The overall theme of the 2014 WOC Business Forum is Industry Leadership in Ocean Governance and the Blue Economy. The Forum will catalyze informed, coordinated and proactive Ocean Business Community engagement in the ocean policy and planning efforts which will significantly impact future ocean economic activity. The World Ocean Council is committed to ensuring that ocean industries are well informed of the ocean policy and planning processes affecting their future operations and well equipped to make decisions on whether and how to most effectively engage in these developments.
