Diving Into the Blue Economy
This Economic Issue of the Day provides an overview of the concept of the blue economy and explores how different groups view and apply it to their sustainable development efforts and businesses. There is still no widely accepted definition of blue economy despite the growing interest in it. The article thus calls for the international community to work together in developing a common understanding of the concept and in laying down a set of clear policies and framework for creating a sustainable blue economy.
