The Bright Spots event is a dedicated effort to surface, analyze, and widely share innovative and replicable community-based marine conservation and small-scale fisheries solutions, which supports the implementation of SDG 14 and aim to address various SDGs issues of poverty, food security and climate change. This event provides the essential learning and leadership exchange that builds on the political and financial commitments that will be made during the Conference. The event aims to provide a stage for local communities to present their bright spots and celebrate and widely share them such that they can be replicated to enhance their impact. It will provide an opportunity to share best practice and learn from each other to replicate solutions that work. Many times, however, these solutions remain at the local level and go unnoticed by the international community.
