Blue Pacific Ocean - Report 2021
Environmental Monitoring and Governance, Island and Ocean Ecosystems
This Blue Pacific Ocean 2021 Report (BPOR) is indeed a first of its kind. While sectoral approaches to reporting on development and implementation in the various areas of ocean governance has been the norm, the BPOR is unique in the sense that it is the first attempt at the regional level to compile a comprehensive, multi-facetted, cross-cutting and holistic review and stock take of the state of affairs of ocean governance in the region, in the contemporary period. Rather than inventing the wheel as it were, the BPOR as is noted, leans extensively on existing regional, national and sectoral work and ocean initiatives, that now underpin much of the analysis in the report.
