Ocean and Coastal Policy Program Director Linwood Pendleton will serve as the discussion leader of the working group session "EEZs: Governance and Developing a Sustainable Ocean Economy," at The Economist's second World Ocean Summit. Taking place in San Francisco Feb. 24-27, the event will be chaired by John Micklethwait, Editor-in-Chief of The Economist, and will convene global leaders from government, business, international organisations, NGOs, think-tanks and academia to continue the unique outcome driven dialogue first established at the 2012 summit.

The working group session Pendleton will lead looks at how governance structures can be created and who must be at the table; how the economic case can best be made; where the financing will come from; and how to win over the skeptics.
