AIS Blue Economy High-Level Dialogue

9 OCTOBER 2023
BALI, INDONESIA

THE 1st ARCHIPELAGIC AND ISLAND STATES (AIS) BLUE ECONOMY HIGH-LEVEL DIALOGUE

As the world is onboard sailing towards a new era of sustainable blue growth, it is a collective responsibility to ensure that no one is left behind. The archipelagic and island states, which will be most affected by climate change and any participating states are mostly least-developed countries, must be able to benefit from the growing trend of sustainable blue economy.

These implies giving the support needed for archipelagic and island states to optimise and unlock tapping new sources and innovative financing on scaling up blue finance, including new blue innovative instruments such as blue bond, debt-for-ocean swap, and natural capital insurance; as well as to access and utilize technologies. It is also important to ensure that archipelagic and island states can utilize and access technology development as another enabling environment crucial to unlock the vast potential of the blue economy.

Realising these visions require extraordinary levels of collaboration by all stakeholders. The AIS Blue Economy High-Level Dialogue brings together world leaders, experts, thoughts and business leaders to forge a new era of sustainable blue growth and strengthen collaboration for a more reliable and accessible blue financing to accelerate the implementation of the world’s blue economy.

The event concludes with High-Level Remarks, High-Level Dialogues, and Indonesia Policy Showcases from various stakeholders while some of the brightest minds exploring blue financing strategies, innovative solutions, and collaborative initiatives to unlock the potential of our oceans.

At this event, we also launched the AIS Blue Hub and the AIS Research and Development Center as part of our continuous commitment to a sustainable ocean future.

After a sideline discussion at the Ocean Conference 2017 in New York City and a follow-up Conference on the Archipelagic and Island States Forum in Jakarta in 2017, a common understanding among AIS participating countries was born. The Archipelagic and Island States Forum was then formally established through the adoption of the Manado Joint Declaration during the first Ministerial Meeting of the participating countries on 1 November 2018.

The Archipelagic and Island States (AIS) Forum is a platform designed to include island states and archipelagic countries regardless of their region, size, and development level. A global initiative that brings together 51 archipelagic and island nations to take part in a collective forum addressing challenges of ocean resource usage for sustainable economic growth, climate change resiliency, ocean pollution, emergency management, and the enhancement of sustainable fisheries.

 

The Archipelagic and Island States (AIS) Forum stands as a visionary platform, purposefully crafted to encompass the participation of 51 diverse archipelagic and island nations from across the globe. Its overarching mission is to facilitate a collective forum aimed at addressing the pressing issue of sustainable development. Within this forum, these nations come together to forge international partnerships and foster cooperation in their shared commitment to sustainable development. By uniting their efforts and expertise, the AIS Forum plays a pivotal role in harnessing the collective power of these island states to tackle the environmental, economic, and social challenges they face while striving to build a more sustainable and interconnected world.
Five years after the establishment of the AIS Forum, leaders from AIS countries have agreed to strengthen commitment for collaboration among nations. On 11th October 2023 in Bali, Indonesia, at the First High Level Meeting of the AIS Foru,, 32 AIS countries agreed to adopt the Leaders’ Declaration on the Solidarity of the Archipelagic and Island States. The adoption of this declaration marked a significant step for the AIS Forum to further elevate its position in the global scheme. The Declaration focuses on four collaborative areas, which are:
