WHY AN ATLANTIC INITIATIVE

The Blue Economy approach to the oceans supports economic growth, social inclusion and improvement of livelihoods, while also ensuring the continued health of coastal and marine ecosystems and the services they provide. This takes careful planning and management, based on a sound understanding of marine and coastal environments. However, these areas are expensive and challenging to measure and monitor using in situ techniques alone. In many cases there are no viable alternatives to EO for providing the information decision-makers need in order to build a sustainable blue economy.
