The Governments of Portugal and Kenya are proud to organize the Sustainable Blue Economy Investment Forum (SBEIF), a special event of the 2nd United Nations Ocean Conference that will take place at Estoril Congress Centre in Cascais on June 28, 2022, 3.00pm.


Our aim is to connect all stakeholders through a transformative blue economy, as this is critical for a sustainable future.


The ocean is the main life source of our planet, and it is vital for human well-being and a thriving global economy. The sustainable blue economy must therefore shift from the model of simple resource extraction and depletion that has defined the last century and transition to a circular and inclusive economic model.


According to the HighLevel Panel for a Sustainable Blue Economy, “building a sustainable ocean economy is one of the most important tasks and greatest opportunities of our time. It is critical to achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and it is vital if we are to emerge from current and future crises with stronger economies, healthier people and more resilient communities.”


One of the main objectives of the Forum is to launch a process for designing the blue economy’s sustainable framework global standard, to be used in financial instruments, investment decisions and business.
