Ocean Restoration

While all four oceans have suffered as a result of human consequence for over millennia by now, it has accelerated in the past few decades. Oil spills, toxic wastes, floating plastic and various other factors have all contributed to the pollution of the ocean. Ocean pollution not only hurts the ocean ecosystem but also the human food chain and various economies.  In recent years, initiatives have been launched in various countries to try to restore and protect the oceans.  Where are those programs and projects and how can modern project management contribute to these efforts?  This section of the PM World Library is intended to provide access to a few resources for those who want to learn more or help.

Blue Nature Alliance - an ambitious global partnership that collaborates with governments, NGOs, Indigenous peoples, and scientists to advance effective large-scale ocean conservation. The Blue Nature Alliance engages locally in new and existing ocean conservation areas to achieve the global target of conserving at least 30% of the ocean by 2030 and to sustainably manage the rest to safeguard the ocean’s biodiversity, build resilience to climate change, and enhance the function and connectivity of the ecosystem.
