This 3-day virtual course will explore the origins of the Blue Economy, how it is regulated under international,
regional and national governance frameworks, with a particular emphasis on how the trade context affects and is
affected by the Blue Economy Agenda. Using case studies, it will also 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 opportunities and benefits to small
island development states, like those of CARICOM.
