The Development Finance Forum is the annual flagship event of KfW Development Bank. The Forum each year deals with a current and pressing issue of international development cooperation: This time it is about the world´s oceans and why their protection is so important for the future of human kind. The event takes place on 21st and 22nd of November in Frankfurt and follows the first UN conference on oceans in New York in June and the climate conference in Bonn in November. This Development Finance Forum is entitled “Oceans 21 – Solutions for a Sustainable Marine Future”. Close to 150 experts from around the world gather at KfW to discuss ways to protect the world´s oceans and obstacles that might be in the way. The focal points of the conference next to marine protection are marine economy and marine litter.
