7-8 June 2025 Nice, Provence-Alpes-Cote D'Azur, France
Blue Economy and Finance Forum

The Blue Economy and Finance Forum (BEFF) will identify and mobilize solutions to support initiatives to promote the blue economy and conserve marine ecosystems. The Forum will convene as a special event of the Third UN Ocean Conference (UNOC3).

The French Organizing Committee for the UN Ocean Conference 2025, the Oceanographic Institute of Monaco, and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation will organize the event. The Forum will be co-chaired by the Pascal Lamy, Permanent Mission of Palau to the UN, and Illana Seid, co-chair of the UN Ocean Panel.

The event will bring together stakeholders from the private sector, businesses, banks, insurance companies, philanthropies, and the public sector to share their experiences and analyze how to scale up solutions. The Forum aims to mobilize companies and innovative public and private financing solutions to support sustainable ocean activities and SDG 14 (life below water). Participants will consider action to finance impact projects and new financial solutions for the ocean.

The Forum will also focus on countries and regions most at risk, including possible recommendations to participants in the UN Diplomatic Conference, which will also convene as part of UNOC3.
