The ocean economy presents opportunities for developing nations to build innovative, equitable, and sustainable economies.
However, women's contributions in this sector are often undervalued and overlooked.
Sustainable aquaculture, set to double in value and volume, demands gender-responsive policies.
As countries align with the Paris Agreement, recognizing and supporting women's untapped potential becomes paramount, underpinned by their rights. Inclusion in decision-making and policy development is essential for gender equality and women's rights, paving the way for a more inclusive, equitable, and sustainable ocean economy, enhanced food security, and progress toward broader development objectives.
