pour ce voyage collectif, il avait fait une promesse que personne ne sera laissé pour compte. Et il a fait le vœu que les objectifs et cibles de tous les groupements économiques et sociaux se réalisent.
Ce pourquoi nous parmis les embarquées, nous y retrouvons dans le cadre d'appuyer la mise en œuvre du développement durable objectifs 14.
Etant une organisation non gouvernementales du développement, l'aide publique au développement continue à être importante pour soutenir les besoins en matières de développement durable des pays et des regions. Notament les pays moins avancés tels que en Afrique et en RDC en particulier, dont notre objectif et de savoir comment se fait la pèche comparativement a notre pays et partout dans le monde est de siumettre les différents besoins des pécheurs de la RDC pour que cette mise en œuvre soit appliqué partout comme repris dans l'objectif 14b dans le programme de développement pour l'après 2015
