Opening Reception on 10 Monday 2022

Aquatic blue foods are essential to global food and nutrition security, providing billions of people with protein and essential nutrients that are not easily replaced. They are especially important for coastal and rural communities including those that are highly vulnerable to climate change. However, these resources have been undervalued and overlooked in global food and nutrition dialogues. Efforts are needed to bring aquatic blue foods into food system decision-making and policies.

Aquatic Blue Food Coalition members Environmental Defense Fund and the Safe Seaweed Coalition have teamed up to host this opening reception. Join us for beverages and light refreshments, including tasty seaweed canapes.

Time: after the evening session on Monday, 10 October 2022
