Ocean’s regeneration is the most important challenge humanity can’t fail,
otherwise, the next mass extinction will be the humankind.
Life started in The Ocean
Earth is called
The Blue Planet because
71% is water
The Ocean is the main actor regulating the climate crisis! It is dying and absorbing far too much damage, so it is not enough to keep trying just to protect it. There is an urgent need to kick-start NOW the global Ocean’s ReGeneration !
The Ocean produce up to 70% of the oxygen, absorbing at least 40% of CO2 emissions and heat, offering more than 70% of the proteins and hosting 95% of the biosphere.

BluEconomy Growth is key for anticipation, adaptation,
ReGeneration & political stability
Climate change is increasing population displacement to the shorelines & to mega coastal capitals
Climate change is resulting in sea level rise : shoreline floods could affect more than 570 coastal cities – 1.5bn people – increasing shoreline land based competition, poverty, instability…
Coastal cities are going to face the most complex challenges : population growth, land based competition, flooding, shorelines degradation, waste and sanitation management, among others.
To preserve Global Political Stability, governments must anticipate
the growing needs of food safety, energy, transport, jobs, leisure & economic growth.
By 2055, population on earth will be around 10 billion (+20% vs today)
50% of the global population will be living within 100km from the coast and mostly among mega coastal capitals
Migration routes are increasing shoreline degradation & coastal land competition
Ocean-based & BlueTech innovations are game changers, providing
solutions to anticipate the challenges & tackle Climate Change
Despite the fact that relatively few investments have been channelled to Blue Growth, the BluEconomy already represents the 2nd largest global economic sector and is expected to double by 2030.
A Blue Revolution is coming !
Seeding the BluEconomy ecosystem & connecting ESG finance to Blue Industries will trillionize Blue Growth in coming decades.
NOAH is offering such an ecosystem !
Panama : the pilot country for the United Nations Fund for Climate Neutral Tourism
As part of the COP26 in Glasgow, agreements were reached between the UNWTO, the government of Panama and NOAH to establish Panama as the first pilot country to support the implementation of the United Nations Fund for Climate Neutral Tourism. This is an innovative financing instrument promoted by the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) to respond to the problems related to the climate crisis.
This is just the Beginning
One of the highlights of the closure of the summit was the presentation of the commitment to climate action for emission-neutral tourism. A pact signed by the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the Noah Regen business group (Network of Ocean ambassadors) and the Latin American Federation of Municipalities (Flacma).
The agreement addresses the financing and commitment to carry out actions that the UNWTO wants to transfer to tourism in this “new agenda” for the recovery of the tourism sector based on sustainability and social inclusion. Zurab Pololikashvilli, secretary general of this United Nations agency, congratulated all the institutions and companies involved in the organization of a first edition of the forum that has been “successful”.

Future of Politics Summit 2021 with Frédéric Degret
How can the collaboration between the public and private sectors shape politics in the future?
Frederic Degret presented NOAH in the Summit and shared what we have done in terms of collaboration between the public and private sectors. He highlighted the fact that governance needs to anticipate in order to keep political stability. The current climate crisis is pushing people to live near the coast and rising sea levels could complicate these conditions in the future.
