For the week of 13 July 2015
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
WWF has published a new report, Reviving the Ocean Economy: The case for action. The report "analyses the ocean’s role as an economic powerhouse and outlines the threats that are moving it toward collapse." Furthermore, the report values ocean assets "to be at least US$24 trillion. If compared to the world’s top 10 economies, the ocean would rank seventh with an annual value of goods and services of US$2.5 trillion." You may download the full report using the link above.
As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org .
