RIS, jointly with the Ministry of Earth Sciences, is organising a public lecture on "Blue Economy Framework for Sustainable Development and Economic Prosperity" by the noted expert Prof. Charles Colgan, Professor from National Ocean Economics Programme (NOEP), USA at 3.00 pm on Tuesday, 25 April 2017 at Jacaranda Hall, India Habitat Centre, Lodhi Road, New Delhi (Entry from Gate No.3). Prof. Charles Colgan is an eminent scholar in the areas of ocean economies, transportation and economic development, urban planning and policy analysis.
In the recent years, Blue Economy has emerged as major development paradigm for coastal economies. Ocean sector is a key driver of economic growth for littoral countries and maintenance of good ocean health is the foremost requirement for sustainable use of ocean resources. In this regard, SDG-14 would certainly complement efficacy of the Blue Economy in coastal economies in accomplishing high economic growth. For taking this process forward, domestic, regional and global ocean policies need to be integrated in shaping effectiveness of the Blue Economy policies. A copy of the Tentative Programme is enclosed for your ready reference.
