Blue economy core research concepts open for review
The Challenge Leadership Team has developed core research project concepts for Theme 2: Creating value from a blue economy.
This process built upon on Sustainable Seas research from Phase I, the recent report Transitioning to a blue economy: scoping and horizon scanning which conducted more than 30 interviews with key individuals involved in the Aotearoa New Zealand marine industries, and a co-development workshop involving stakeholders, Māori and researchers held in February 2020.
Four core research projects are proposed:
Encouraging restorative economies in NZ marine spaces
Indigenising the blue economy in Aotearoa
Growing blue tourism from low impact principles
Building a blue economy sector - seaweed
We invite review of the project concepts, which are presented in this document:
