The Partnership for Offshore Ocean Wave Power. Its goal is to identify the correct stakeholders, mechanisms, and funding sources required to develop and deploy a wave energy conversion system based on a technical breakthrough that makes it capable of delivering zero-emissions, utility-level, electrical power generation from ocean waves. The partnership was first introduced at a side event during the 4th annual Multi-stakeholder Forum on Science, Technology, and Innovation for the Sustainable Development Goals.
The SIDS Partnership Dialogue is part of the SIDS Partnership Framework, launched in 2016, as a follow-up to the SAMOA Pathway. It is intended to launch new partnerships and follow-up on existing partnerships through sharing of best practices, challenges and successes.” For more information, please see here.
