Presentation at Consortium for Ocean Leadership

Each year, the Consortium for Ocean Leadership hosts a day-long public meeting to facilitate ocean policy discussions with representatives from Congress, federal agencies, industry, and the academic research community. This year marked the 5th annual Public Policy Forum and focused on the theme of The Urban Ocean.

Forum participants heard scientists, deans, directors, and presidents of research institutions, and policymakers, discuss the threats, impacts and implications of coastal population.
