Sea basin/macro-regional strategies provide a framework for integrated approaches to maritime issues and promote common solutions and actions. Implementation is supported through a variety of programmes, action plans and projects. This session will highlight best practice projects and will discuss whether and in what way these and other projects contribute to strategic project pipelines for blue/green growth. It will also discuss the evolving nature of project funding and risk sharing for blue growth projects to bring innovative ideas closer to market.
