About The conference is aimed at reviewing the concerns involved in the marine ecosystem and formulating strategies for the better and sustainable utilization of marine wealth by enhancing livelihood options. The symposium is organized by the Marine Biological Association of India. It will also serve as a platform for discussions on a range of topics, including the impact of the climate crisis on marine ecosystems and the unusual warming of the Arabian Sea. The conference would focus on the Sustainable Development Goal of the United Nations, SDG-14 which says ‘conserve and sustainably use the oceans and its resources for sustainable development. Signifi cance Billions of people worldwide, especially the world’s poorest rely on healthy oceans to provide jobs and food underscoring the urgent need to sustainably use and protect this natural resource. However, numerous issues such as depletion of resources, marine pollution, extreme weather conditions, and rising sea surface temperature pose a threat to the sustainable utilization of marine resources. Hence, the conference would come up with a roadmap to deal with these issues. Conclusion Eminent marine scientists, oceanographers, fishery researchers, and marine bio-technologists from across the globe have assembled in Kochi and stressed the need for the preservation of the marine ecosystem. Moreover, the symposium itself has been designed in an eco-friendly way. No printed materials and single-use plastics will be used at the symposium. Natural materials will be used for presenting mementos to the guests and certificates will be sent to the participants in digital form. This will have a stronger impact on the behavior of people as well the state and non-state actors to play a major role in marine ecosystem conservation. Healthy oceans, coasts, and related ecosystems are crucial for economic growth and food production. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
