This GGGWeek2021’s session enabled the sharing of some government plans and perspectives from Asian and Pacific countries on their blue economy ambitions, learning about the vulnerability of countries in the region to sea level rise, and sharing lessons about inclusive and nature-based solutions for enhancing coastal resilience. In the Post-COVID era, recovery packages need to be structured to promote livelihoods and jobs, while strengthening long-term coastal ecosystem resilience.
