The First International Conference on

The Red Sea Ecosphere:

Conservation and Management

of Red Sea Marine Environment


Under the patronage of HRH Prince El-Hassan bin Talal, the Higher  Council for Science and Technology (HCST), in cooperation with the National Center for Innovation (NCI), is holding the first international scientific conference on "The Red Sea Ecosphere: Conservation and Management of Red Sea Marine Environment," in the city of Aqaba during the period 4-6 November 2022. This conference comes in response to the proclamation of the United Nations General Assembly under the title "a Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development (2021-2030)." It sheds light on the long-term environmental and developmental threats and pressures facing the Red Sea region, its resources, and its marine environment due to political developments, malpractices, and conflicts. The plan is to hold the conference biennially to emphasize the pivotal role of universities, research centers, and governmental and non-governmental organizations in studying and protecting the environment of the Red Sea.

A group of expert speakers and researchers concerned with marine sciences and the environment from the bordering countries of the Red Sea and from around the world will participate in the conference to discuss relevant issues in the Red Sea. Also, the opportunity was opened for researchers interested in various aspects of the Red Sea Ecosphere to send extended abstracts related to the conference themes through the Jordan Open Innovation Platform (JOIP) until 5/9/2022.


Conference Objectives:

Introducing the biological diversity of the Red Sea and its environment and the latest scientific research and development at universities and related institutions in marine biotechnology and sustainable ecotourism.
Exchanging information, experiences, and studies between universities and research centres contributing to establishing a common database among the Red Sea bordering countries to help make decisions and confront environmental crises promptly to correct administrative decisions and reduce and prevent risks.
Focusing on the role of experts interested in science, technology, innovation, management, and others, as it works to spread the development and progress necessary to reduce disaster risks and the factors that lead to environmental pollution and inhibit the survival and growth of critical marine habitats such as coral reefs. It is also an opportunity for new researchers to contribute to developing methods of protecting the marine environment for the welfare of humanity.
Contributing towards finding solutions to severe environmental challenges, such as the oil tanker "Safer" and harmful emissions in the Red Sea region.
Institutionalizing work in this field by convening the conference periodically on a biennial basis, publishing its proceedings and recommendations, and coming up with outputs and suggestions for specific joint work programs that would preserve the environment and biological diversity of the Red Sea.
