Sustainable Blue Economy Project in Mozambique Submitted for Consultation

Representatives from different institutions, including government, academia, civil society and international cooperation partners, are taking part in a consultation workshop in Maputo to gather sensitivities and share synergies around the Sustainable Blue Economy project in Mozambique.

The initiative, to be implemented by the European Union (EU) between 2024-28, is budgeted at 35 million euros and comprises three main components: the blue economy observatory, strengthening the fishing and aquaculture chains and marine conservation and restoration.

According to ProAzul’s Chairman, Simeão Lopes, the meeting organised by the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) is extremely important as it will provide crucial input for better implementation of the project.

“We expect to come away with clearer and more objective ideas, so that we can achieve the desired success,” he emphasised.

Lopes also said that it was necessary for “the entire coastal community to be aligned in order to guarantee sustainability and resilience”.

It is hoped that the Blue Economy will guide the country in harnessing its aquatic economic potential (marine, coastal and inland water resources and the activities associated with them) in a way that contributes significantly to Mozambique’s sustainable development.
