Africa Blue Economy Forum (ABEF)
Blue Jay Communication will host the second edition of the Africa Blue Economy Forum (ABEF). Taking place in Tunis this year, the event will gather 150+ delegates from across the globe, including ocean experts and innovators, African political leaders and policy makers, international entrepreneurs and investors, as well as NGOs and multilaterals.
The forum will provide a unique platform for ocean stakeholders to share insights on how to achieve SDG 14 and present new investment opportunities, while facilitating public-private partnerships and networking.
As a key driver for global trade and commerce and a major source of food and energy (90% of world trade and 2/3 of energy supplies are carried by sea), the ocean has every reason to become a strong economic force and even more so in Africa where more than 70% of the states are coastal.
ABEF recognises the importance of the Blue Economy in creating jobs, sustaining livelihoods for local communities and offering low-cost impactful climate change adaptation solutions on the continent.
