Women Leading Ocean Action

The action of women is a key part of reaching Sustainable Development Goal 14, Life Under Water. At the United Nations Ocean Conference from 5 – 9 June in New York this year, an event on day one will showcase women's actions and strategies for including women in ocean management.

The UN Ocean Conference is co-hosted by the Governments of Fiji and Sweden. Fiji will also be featured in the special event titled "Healers of our ocean: Asia-Pacific women leading ocean action to achieve SDG14".
