Regional Workshop: Towards Data-Driven Sustainability of the Mediterranean Blue Economy

Plan Bleu is organizing a regional workshop entitled “Towards Data-Driven Sustainability in the Blue Economy of the Mediterranean” on November 23, 2023, in Marseille (France) and online.

This event targets a diverse audience from the South, North, and East of the Mediterranean, including researchers, policymakers, international organizations, civil society, industry leaders, and many other Mediterranean stakeholders involved in the challenges of the blue economy. The workshop will take place over one day, with the option for participation in person or remotely. After an introductory session where a first version of a scoping study to develop a Mediterranean pilot on measuring the sustainability of the Mediterranean blue economy will be presented, the workshop will be divided into two round-table discussions:

  • Expansion of the indicator framework (technical/academic session): This session will detail indicators and measures that go beyond traditional economic metrics and that can be used to monitor the interaction between economic activities and their environmental and societal implications. The goal is to preselect and discuss the feasibility of obtaining and using indicators to monitor the sustainability of the blue economy sectors in the region, taking into account the interrelationships between sectors.
  • Inclusive stakeholder engagement (institutional session): This second session will promote a collaborative and inclusive approach to measuring the sustainability of the blue economy in the Mediterranean. It will involve a wide range of stakeholders (government agencies, private sector entities, academic institutions, non-governmental organizations, and local communities) in order to build consensus and gain their unique perspective and expertise.
