Attending and presenting at the Blue Economy Conference in Nairobi in November. My paper written with Chris Tompkins was on the Blue Economy Investment Facility and was reflected as an idea in the outcome document  

Terry Waghorn conducted an interview with Chris and me in Inter Press ServiceAn on the idea 'Advocating for a 'Blue Economy Investment Facility'.

While in Nairobi I conducted a brown bag lunch on the topic of Accelerating Effective Partnerships for UN Environment to leverage transformative and impactful partnerships to accelerate the implementation of UN Environment Programme’s Medium-Term Strategy (2018-2021) and its accompanying programmed of work. The UN Environment Programme ensures partnerships are aligned with the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda and its Sustainable Development Goals. Partnerships have become a key priority for the UN Environment Programme as a whole
