Barriers still exist to women taking an equal role in marine policy and ocean governance. However, women’s voices are essential to achieving effective ocean governance, as their inclusion can lead to better understanding of the social-ecological linkages of marine ecosystems and dependent livelihoods; enlarge the talent pool in maritime industries; and advocate for conservation concerns that are often overlooked. 

In this vein, organized under the SAPPHIRE project, the Nairobi Convention will be hosting a leadership workshop for women involved in marine policy and ocean governance in Mombasa, Kenya from 4-6 December. The leadership renewal workshop seeks to promote the empowerment, active participation, and networking among officials, women marine scientists and experts in charge of policy formulation, decision-making and implementation of policies and programmes on coastal and marine ecosystem management and ocean governance.
