Africa's Great Blue Wall Initiative, led by countries in the Western Indian Ocean (WIO) region, alongside the IUCN and a coalition of partners, represents a visionary mission. By 2030, the initiative aims to preserve, safeguard, and rejuvenate an impressive 2 million hectares of precious ocean and coastal ecosystems. In pursuit of this noble goal, the Great Blue Wall also endeavors to foster the growth of a regenerative blue economy that benefits both humanity and the planet. We are proud to be part of this noble cause that seeks to create a sustainable and thriving future for our planet!
