Towards an inclusive blue economy
Project flyer, 6 pages
This flyer outlines IIED's 'Moving towards an inclusive blue economy' project, which explores the use of innovative economic solutions to address the challenges facing the fisheries sector.
Our aim is to enhance understanding of two things: the contribution that fisheries make to the economy and to the livelihoods of millions of people who depend on them, and the difference equitable sharing of the benefits of sustainable fisheries management could make to resource users.
Marine and coastal resources support the livelihoods of millions of poor people across the world. They also provide a range of critical ecosystem services to the rest of the economy. The connection between high seas and coastal waters where small-scale fishers are active is relatively unexplored but already, the need for an ocean governance system, which will protect both areas, is evident.
