The Science and Research Symposium was one of the ten signature events of the Global Sustainable Blue Economy Conference (SBEC). Those participating in this segment of the conference were primarily from national (Kenyan) and international academic research institutions, international and regional organizations, United Nations agencies and development partners, industry representatives and the private sector, NGOs, and civil society organizations. The main objective of the symposium was to function as a forum for scholars and researchers to debate and share ideas on the complex scientific issues surrounding the blue economy.
