The ocean is the source of life. It has sustained Samoa and its people for generations and remains critical to the economy, culture, and wellbeing of the nation. However, the ocean faces unprecedented threats from global climate change, unsustainable fisheries and development, and pollution.
The Samoa Ocean Strategy, or SOS, is the national policy framework that seeks to sustainably manage Samoa’s vast ocean and marine resources for the well-being of all Samoans now, and into the future. The SOS provides bold and comprehensive integrated ocean management solutions that will advance ocean stewardship and ensure the cultural and the economic values that Samoans derive from their 120,000 square kilometer ocean are preserved for generations to come.
