In this World Ocean Summit Asia-Pacific hosted by The Economist, executives from across the investment community will convene virtually for a nuanced conversation and tailored discussion to catalyze the aquatic food economy. They will center on pressing concerns for the ocean and cities and seek solutions for climate change mitigation, biodiversity, aquaculture, and fishing to generate momentum in economic prosperity, ocean restoration and improve the livelihoods of the poor and vulnerable in the Asia-Pacific. 

On Friday, 10 December 2021 from 13:15-14:00 (UTC+8), WorldFish's Global Lead in Nutrition and Public Health and the 2021 World Food Prize Laureate, Shakuntala Thilsted will join a panel discussion 'Scaling sustainably to address food security concerns,' to share her experience in innovative aquatic food-finance mechanisms to maximize the direction of mainstream finance towards food systems transformation with aquatic foods.
