Jamaican Economy Panel Discussion on the Ocean Economy
03 August 2022
Today, the Jamaican Economy Panel (JEP) publishes its thirteenth round of discussions. In this discussion, the JEP was asked questions on the Ocean economy in Jamaica and asked to share their perspectives on the central issues as well as what should be done to combat Ocean pollution.
Almost three-quarters of the earth's surface is covered by Oceans, yet the world is far from capturing the benefits it can offer for sustainable development. Under constant challenge from major threats like climate change, human mistreatment, and inappropriate waste management, all of which have been detrimental to the health of the oceans and to those who depend on its resources.
