Trade and the Environment: The Blue Economy

Course Description

The course will explore the origins of the blue economy, the manner in which it is regulated under international and regional governance frameworks, with a particular emphasis on the trade context.

It will then consider how the blue economy and its sustainable development has been and is best integrated into national and regional development plans, identifying best practice and ultimately exploring how best the Blue Economy can yield substantial opportunities and benefits to small island development states, like those of CARICOM.
