Africa in Focus Show | Ep.92 | Fishing for Solutions: Demystifying Africa's Blue Economy
*Bama Lamré, Chargé d'Affaires of the Togolese Embassy here in Accra has agreed to appear on the Show to give us the Togolese government view, and explain why it believes Togo felt it necessary to host this first-ever AU Summit**
Ahead of the first-ever African Union Extraordinary Summit on Maritime Security and Safety & Development in Africa to be held in Lome, Togo from 10 to 15 October, we want to use the 12 October edition of the Show to demystify the trillion-dollar Economy that is known as the Blue Economy.
Given the precious little conversation there exists on what constitutes the Blue Economy, we want to speak to Nii Amarh Amarfio Richster, a final year law student at Central University; Co-founder of Fisheries' Alliance and a fisherman to help us better-understand why this conference remains one of the most important conferences in the AU's institutional memory in the way it will seek to address Africa's Blue Economy, which includes aquaculture, fisheries, and oceans.
*What is the Blue Economy?
*Why is the Lome conference important?
*How can Africa strategically-benefit from the Blue Economy?
Guests on the line/studio:
•Nii Amarh Amarfio Richster, Co-Founder of Fisheries Alliance; law student; teacher
•Bama Lamré, Chargé d'Affaires, Embassy of Togo, Accra
