October 27 – 29, 2021
This is not your traditional scientific conference – WIOGEN aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and policy makers to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Ocean Governance in the Western Indian Ocean. It will provide an interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to meaningfully network and present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in ocean governance under eight broad themes.
- Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture
- Marine Spatial Planning and Integrated Coastal Management
- Biodiversity conservation, Pollution and Habitat loss
- Oceans Accounting
- Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and Ocean Governance
- Co-Design, transdisciplinary research, stakeholder engagement
- Deep Sea Research
- Legal and institutional analysis of marine governance
Abstracts to be submitted to info [@] wiogen.org by the 1st June – guidelines for abstract submission are available here. We are excited to partner with WIOMSA’s Western Indian Journal of Marine Science to produce a special conference edition of the Journal from Conference submissions. Please note that you will need to submit an extended publication if you wish your paper to be considered for publication in the special edition. We will also be accepting abstracts of those who are not in a position to publish in the special edition and stakeholder (non-academic) presentations which can include policy briefs, creative stories, training manuals, fact sheets etc.
