Pirates, tsunamis and icebergs aren’t the only dangers on the high seas.
Though oceans cover some 70% of the Earth’s surface, economically they have been relatively underexploited, until now. Technological advances in mining, aquaculture and energy bolster growing demand, which will help develop opportunities in the briny deep. Yet existing significant damage to the marine environment requires that government and business cooperate in protecting the oceans’ health. getAbstract recommends the Economist Intelligence Unit’s original overview of the new “blue economy” to all readers interested in what lies beneath.
In this summary, you will learn
- What factors make up “the blue economy,”
- How effectively governments are meeting the challenges of planning for it
- Where investment opportunities lie in the world’s oceans
