Study on the potential of the blue economy in the Caribbean basin
Within the framework of the UBEEC (Unleashing a Blue Economy of the Eastern Caribbean) project, which aims at stimulating the blue economy in the Eastern Caribbean, SML has participated in the realization of economic, institutional and scientific diagnoses on the maritime economy of the OECS states. Following our integrated approach to Maritime and Coastal Capital, we contributed to the preparation of roadmaps for the blue economy, focusing on diversifying key economic activities, improving the productivity of marine assets, and strengthening their resilience for long-term sustainability. By analysing ocean research and marine monitoring programmes in more detail, we contributed to the preparation of an OECS ocean research programme and associated action plan.
