About DOTCAN: DOTCAN is a grass-roots initiative which was stimulated by the Sustainable Blue Economy Conference held in Nairobi, Kenya in November 2018. The initiative builds on commitments made by Canada at that conference and will be a concrete implementation of Canada’s Ocean Strategy, which is based on principles of sustainable development, integrated management and the precautionary approach. Initially, this multilateral, multisectoral and “joined-up” initiative will build on links between Canada and West African nations as well as existing international partnerships, with three main focus areas; Education, Business and Maritime Security.
The Ocean Allies speaker series is brought to you by Canada’s Ocean Supercluster.
