Participation of women in ocean issues ‘needs to be mainstreamed’

Ocean health is at a critical stage, and radical changes need to be made by people everywhere to allow sustainable management and development.

Ana Carmo who’s at the conference for UN News in the Portuguese capital, spoke to Maria Damanaki, founder of Leading Women for the Ocean.
