The "Blue Pacific" seeks to re-capture the collective potential of our shared stewardship of the Pacific Ocean based on an explicit recognition of our shared "ocean identity", "ocean geography",and "ocean resources". It aims to strengthen
collective action as one "Blue Pacific Continent" by putting "The Blue Pacific" at the centre of the policy making and collective action for advancing the Pacific Islands Forum Leaders' Vision for our Region.
