Policy Brief : Blue Economy for Inclusive and Sustainainable Growth

07 May 2018


The blue economy has a great potential to contribute to higher and faster GDP growth in Kenya. Innovation and growth in the coastal, marine and maritime sector could deliver food, energy, transport, among other products and services and serve as a foundation for sustainable development in Kenya. Diversifying the country’s economy beyond land-based activities and along its coastal, marine and maritime sector is critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and delivering smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.  The policy brief provides reflections on the necessary policies that should be implemented to leverage the blue economy for sustainable development and inclusive growth in Kenya and Eastern Africa region. It also serves as a building block for further development of policies to support the blue economy in the region.
