Of particular interest was the launch of a global plan to save coral reefs: https://50reefs.org presented by Prof. Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, Director of the Global Change Institute, the University of Queensland in collaboration with The Ocean Agency from Australia. The 50 Reefs initiative starts with a vital scientific study, overseen by a panel of the world’s leading experts with also a focus on communication and conservation. The initiative is supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, and The Tiffany & Co. Foundation. Siti Syahwali, operations and regional hub manager also attended the ocean conference and engaged in discussions on the emerging risks and investment frameworks for the ocean, climate change risk and financing.
