World Oceans Day was 8th June 2019. This year, the Nairobi Convention celebrated by releasing information on major issues facing the Western Indian Ocean (WIO) region and how the contracting parties are working to sustainably protect, manage and use their marine and coastal resources.
In addition to sharing stories highlighting actions taken by each of its Contracting Parties, the Convention also received several stories from partner institutions outlining progress, challenges, and recommendations.
The Nairobi Convention would particularly like to thank all of its Focal Points, as well as CORDIO, Birdlife International, Jomo Kenyatta University, World Wide Fund for Nature, University of Nairobi, Indian Ocean Commission, Wildlife Conservation Society, and The Nature Conservancy for their contributions and input.
