The Blue Economy approach for sustainability in Seychelles & East Africa

Adam Moolna, Benjamin Thompson

Research output: Working paperWorking PaperOther


The Blue Economy approach to ocean and coastal sustainable economic development in Seychelles and across East Africa promises great potential and has emerged to dominate regional attention on sustainability. Yet we contend that a policy consensus presenting the Blue Economy as “the solution” to sustainable development and associated high level political rhetoric limits critical evaluation of complex practical opportunities or risks and avoids difficult debates on the compromises needed.
