2023 Report: Blue Economy Trends, Opportunities, and Recommendations

On March 22, 2023, ISD and SACC-USA released a report analyzing the value, growth, and opportunities of more than fifteen maritime industries. With the frequency, magnitude, and costs of water-based and man-made disasters increasing, this report emphasizes the need for blue innovation in climate change discourse and provides cross-sector and cross-industry recommendations for putting water-based research and development at the top of the agenda for climate technology and innovation.

Report made possible through the generous contributions of the U.S. Embassy in Sweden, Hummeltorp Sverige AB, and other supporters of ISD and SACC-USA.
