Initial Workshop – National Blue Economy Blueprint Development: Setting the Pathway for Malaysia

13 December 2023 (8:00 AM) - 14 December 2023 (5:30 PM)

Coasts and oceans are some of the most productive ecosystems, providing an array of services that directly and indirectly support economic activity and growth. Diversifying countries’ economies beyond land-based activities and along their coasts is critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and delivering smart, sustainable, and inclusive growth globally. The ocean economy can generally account for about 15-40% of total GDP of the countries in this region.

The ocean sector is crucial to Malaysia’s economy through its resources and ecosystem services that support its trade and industries and therefore requires proper management and conservation strategies to achieve maximum economic, environmental, and social outcomes. Such a process will involve participation by relevant stakeholders and the need to assess the resources required in terms of physical and human assets, investment in research, science, and technology, collaboration, as well as review and formulation of policies.

National initiative to drive this further include developing a blue economy blueprint to help define and refine Malaysia’s conception of the concept and implementation, promoting the use of ocean economy data in marine planning, and to facilitate further engagement and collaboration on related areas, in addition to identifying relevant stakeholders and encouraging their involvement through discussions and consultations for mapping exercises to rationalise better governance efforts, identify interests that need to be safeguarded, and explore opportunities.

This workshop is therefore targeted to set the pathway for a systematic and coordinated approach, through stakeholders’ consultation, to drive the preparation of a national blue economy blueprint.
