Marine-Based 'Blue Economies' Offer Massive Potential

More than 500 people are gathering in Maputo this week to attend an international oceans conference hosted by the Mozambican government. The event aims to explore opportunities to expand the "blue economies" of countries in the western Indian Ocean region and has the theme "Growing blue - sustainable and shared exploitation of the ocean". The conference comes shortly after two major cyclones brought devastation to large parts of Mozambique's coastal region, underscoring the vulnerability of the regional blue economy in light of climate threats and other risks.
