OUR OCEAN, OUR FUTURE
BLUE PROSPERITY MICRONESIA
Blue Prosperity Micronesia is a partnership between the FSM Government and the Blue Prosperity Coalition focused on expanding capacity to achieve the sustainable use of ocean resources to grow economies and fisheries resources, improve livelihoods and jobs, and protect 30% of the marine space for future generations.
We are ocean people to begin with; our heritage is the ocean. Our source of food and livelihoods are largely based on ocean resources. We cannot rely on fishing exports, or tourism, or extraction alone – we must be creative, inclusive, and broaden our understanding of health, wellbeing, and prosperity.”
His Excellency President David W. Panuelo
