On 24th and 25th March 2021, MOSES partner, the Socio-Marine Economic Unit (SEMRU), hosted the 5th International Symposium on the Oceans in National Income Accounts. As well as showcasing the work of MOSES the 2-day symposium involved representatives from government, industry, academia and international organisations who shared their national and international perspectives on progress made in measuring the ocean economy. They discussed ways in which international ocean economy statistics can be improved through satellite and natural capital accounting approaches as well as examining how the usage of such information by policymakers can be improved. The sessions are available to watch back below. The Book of Abstracts for the symposium can be downloaded here and the Speaker Profiles here
