Fugro and the Ocean Decade with Jaco Stemmet | Ocean Decade Show!

December 1, 2022

And now for part 2 of 2!

In Part 2 of this episode of The Ocean Decade Show, the plan was to simply cover COP27 from a different perspective, but boy oh boy what a wide ranging conversation this episode turned into! Director of Africa at Fugro, Jaco Stemmet, speaks about his experience at COP27, but also his path to working for the world's leading geo-data specialist, Fugro's long partnership with the IOC on the Ocean Decade, and his work on the recently launched Africa Taskforce for the Ocean Decade. This is a great episode to conclude the second year of the Ocean Decade, and the second year of The Ocean Decade Show podcast!
