The Blue Food Partnership is led by Friends of Ocean Action, a platform of the World Economic Forum, in collaboration with the World Resources Institute. The World Resources Institute also acts as Secretariat for the High Level Panel for a Sustainable Ocean Economy (Ocean Panel).
The Partnership brings together stakeholders from the private sector, non-governmental and intergovernmental organizations, scientists, and governments to build the sustainability of blue foods by improving the sector’s transparency, governance and management structures.
Connecting to policy and science, it is informed by the Ocean Panel’s 2030 ocean food priority areas and the scientific findings of the Blue Food Assessment, which seeks to better understand the role of blue food in global food systems and to support decision-makers in evaluating the opportunities and trade-offs in implementing solutions.
In the first phase, the Blue Food Partnership brought together a group of aquaculture experts for the Sustainable Aquaculture Working Group which produced the Global Sustainable Aquaculture Roadmap. At the country level, the recommendations of the Roadmap are being put into action through the BFP Ghana Initiative. Its goal is to encourage the sustainable growth of aquaculture in Ghana with an industry focus.
