Iniciativa “Blue Growth: sustainable growth from the oceans, seas and coasts”

La Iniciativa Blue Growth tiene como objetivo poner de relieve el potencial sostenible de los recursos marinos y costeros, lo que también contribuirá a los objetivos de la estrategia Europa 2020 para un crecimiento inteligente, sostenible e integrador. Esta consulta pretende reunir la opinión de los individuos y actores interesados que desean expresar sus opiniones en relación con las acciones de la UE. La consulta esta abierta hasta el 11 de Mayo de 2012.

While marine and maritime activities are important for Europe’s economy – and, in many cases, even more important for the direct economic and employment impact on coastal communities – several sectors have not fulfilled their full sustainable economic potential. This is one of the reasons leading to several coastal regions lagging behind in terms of growth, when compared to the rest of Europe. The global economic and financial crisis has further dented growth prospects for these economic sectors.

In light of this, it is essential that Europe recognises the true potential of its marine resources and develops an integrated policy that acknowledges the inter-linkages that exist between the different domains and functions of its seas, oceans and coastal areas. The Integrated Maritime Policy (IMP) that has been pursued by the European Commission since 2007 is an important step in realising Europe’s future strategies and policies.

The Blue Growth initiative builds on earlier policy initiatives to recognise the potential of these marine resources and thus aids in realising the Europe 2020 strategy towards smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.

This consultation aims at gathering the opinion of individuals and stakeholders that have an interest in and would like to shape the EU actions in the marine and maritime sectors.

In order to provide a more comprehensive background to the initiative, we are also providing access to the Third Interim Report of the on-going Blue Growth study “Scenarios and Drivers for Sustainable Growth from the Oceans, Seas and Coasts”.
