Workshop on Global Ocean Governance and Ecological Civilization


CCICED Workshop on Global Ocean Governance and Ecological Civilization was held in Beijing on August 22, 2017.

With comprehensive ocean governance of the oceans as a focus, the meeting participants discussed marine pollution control (covering land-based pollution, plastics and micro-plastics pollution), sustainable fisheries (fish breeding and wild fisheries) and biodiversity conservation, green shipping and mineral resources exploitation and renewable energy systems were discussed, shared relevant research results and gave recommendations for CCICED future research projects. Priority was given to how well-conserved ocean would influence the economic growth, food safety and people’s well-being in the context of the fourth industrial revolution with fast technological advances, as well as global climate change.

Experts believe that marine governance has been the concern of all countries since the ocean system is large and complex, with characteristics completely different from the terrestrial ecosystem. Thus, marine problems should be dealt with in an innovative way and from a global perspective. China will continue to position itself in the global marine governance.

Mr. Jan-Gunnar Winther, Director at Norwegian Polar Institute, Mr. Su Jilan, prestigious expert on marine issues and Academician of CAS, Mr. Liu Shijin, Chinese Chief Advisor of CCICED and Mr. Art Hanson, International Chief Advisor of CCICED, , as well as other experts and CCICED Partners attended the meeting.
