The Blue Economy has become a major investment opportunity for island and coastal communities seeking to develop sustainably, maximizing their local resources without forfeiting them for future generations. Conservation is at the crux of the principle of the Blue Economy, but so is finance, finding the right balance between both ensures a viable long-term project. This session will focus on examples of best practices within different environments.
This occasional newsletter highlights events and stories about innovation in sustainable development for rural, remote and island regions. We want to change the discourse to demonstrate how islandness can be a driver for innovation.
