Are you an official representative of a city/ region/ basin in which a significant share of economic activity depends on oceans, seas, deltas, rivers and lakes?
Are you wondering how to implement a Resilient, Inclusive, Sustainable and Circular (RISC-proof) blue economy?
Do you wish to share examples and good practices to be featured in OECD work?
If so, please fill the OECD Survey: Localising the Blue Economy. Towards a Resilient, Inclusive, Sustainable and Circular approach to the blue economy in cities and regions by 16 September 2022.
The Survey is part of the OECD project Cities and Regions for a Blue Economy, which advocates for a localised approach to the blue economy in which local and national governments and stakeholders share the task of implementing a Resilient, Inclusive, Sustainable and Circular (RISC-proof) blue economy, through good governance at the right scale. It involves both coastal and inland cities in which a significant share of economic activity depends on oceans, seas, deltas, rivers and lakes.
The Survey is the result of a collaboration with: Association of Cities and Ports (AIVP), Atlantic Cities, C40 Cities, International Network of Basin Organisations (INBO), Ocean & Climate Platform, Resilient Cities Network, United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), United Cities and Local Governments Africa (UCLG-Africa).
Responses will provide the basis for a cutting edge report on the Blue Economy at local, regional and basin level to be published in 2024 and launched at the 10th World Water Forum in Bali, Indonesia (March 2024). Survey responses will contribute to a series of discussion papers to be presented at COP27 (November 2022) and the UN 2023 Water Conference (March 2023). All respondents will be acknowledged in the papers and final report.
