The Blue Economy and the Arctic Council.
Organised by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs

The blue economy concept has attracted global attention as a way of conceptualizing sustainable economic development based on the oceans and their resources. This is an important issue also in the Arctic, where marine resources are critically important to the economies of the North.

Throughout its history, the Arctic Council has engaged in questions relating to the oceans and their conservation and use. The Council has produced groundbreaking assessments that have improved our understanding of the Arctic oceans and the subarctic seas.

In this roundtable discussion the participants will address the concept of Blue Economy and its applications in the Arctic Council. The participants will review past efforts in this respect as well as discuss future opportunities for further Arctic Council contributions.

Questions to be addressed:

  • What are the key issues in the Blue Economy concept? Which are important in an Arctic context?
  • What are the major accomplishments of the Arctic Council in addressing the Blue Economy?
  • Are there lessons from the Arctic that have applications elsewhere?
  • What about the future – where should the Arctic Council go in developing the Arctic Blue Economy?

Organised by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs
