Our Ocean Conference Closes in Palau

The seventh Our Ocean Conference concluded in Palau with 410 commitments worth $16.35 billion.  The conference – co-hosted by the Republic of Palau and the United States – was the first to be held in a small island developing state.  Titled “Our Ocean, Our People, Our Prosperity,” the conference highlighted the importance of a healthy ocean to small island developing states—and to all communities where the ocean is a primary source of sustenance.
