The Two Degree Initiative (2DI) Blue Challenge, led by the CGIAR, is one of nine global challenges, focusing on 3 hotspots for collaborative action and investing, namely Asia, Africa and the Pacific. 

The 2DI Blue Challenge is an initiative that connects science, industry, policy and finance to take the leap forward into a climate-resilient future. Through multi-stakeholder consultations, the event identified key interventions where aquatic foods can play a bigger role in building resilience of fisheries and aquaculture dependent communities, and putting food systems on a low emissions pathway. 

It called on stakeholders from government, multilateral organizations, civil society, community-led organizations, research or academic institutes, businesses, SMEs, and finance, in the Great Lakes (Eastern and Southern Africa), South and Southeast Asia, and Pacific Small Island Developing States (Pacific).
