This scientific expedition marks the beginning of a longterm partnership between the Government of the Maldives and the Blue Prosperity Coalition, a global network of governments, NGOs and academic institutions working to protect our oceans so that we can improve local jobs, lives, and the health of the planet now and for the future.

Phase one of the partnership between the Maldives and Blue Prosperity Coalition assesses the impacts and characterizes fish populations across the Northern and Southern atolls. The process also includes sustainable financing as well as blue economy assessments.

Phase two includes mainly involves in the development of a Marine spatial plan. This is a map-based planning process will include stakeholders from local ministries, NGOs, and marine scientists from the #Maldives and from abroad.

Phase three of the five-year program will be directed towards management and implementation. The research will help policymakers to implement sustainable tourism practices that will improve ocean livelihoods without compromising ocean health.
