Blue Frontier has partnered with the Center for the Blue Economy to bring together thought leaders from across industry, government, academia, and the conservation community with a goal of crafting the Ocean Climate Action Plan or OCAP (final draft available here). The plan, with its growing support, will provide the template for some of the first ocean climate legislation and policy actions in U.S. history, beginning in 2021.

Adds Missing Pieces to House Climate Change Framework
The Center for the Blue Economy and Blue Frontier just issued a unique, comprehensive, Ocean Climate Action Plan (OCAP)—the Blue New Deal—offering a cure for the battered post-pandemic economy and solutions for the climate emergency. Many of these recommendations appear in the new Democratic climate plan, however, OCAP adds additional and practical solution-oriented proposals that go beyond the current Democratic thinking.
