Sustainable Blue Economy Conference Commitments
Voluntary commitments for the Ocean are initiatives voluntarily undertaken by Governments, the United Nations system, other intergovernmental organizations, international and regional financial institutions, non-governmental organizations and civil society organizations, academic and research institutions, the scientific community, the private sector, philanthropic organizations and other actors - individually or in partnership - that aim to contribute to the implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14.

The Sustainable Blue Economy Conference is the first global conference on the sustainable blue economy. Over 4,000 participants from around the world are coming together to learn how to build a sustainable blue economy.

All stakeholders attending the Sustainable Blue Economy Conference - on the ground or from afar - are encouraged to register their voluntary commitments to advance SDG 14 now.

All commitments will be included in the global UN Ocean Conference Registry of Voluntary Commitments (oceanconference.un.org), as a concrete contribution from the Sustainable Blue Economy Conference.

All commitments will be made publicly available in the UN Ocean Conference Registry, and may choose to join any of the nine Communities of Ocean Action that have been established to facilitate follow-up of commitments through collaboration and networking amongst different actors in support of SDG 14, and contribute to the next anticipated UN Ocean Conference in 2020.
