The governance of the Blue Economy (BE) involves all levels of government and industry and is affected by a range of normative, regulatory, economic and policy frameworks that are poorly integrated. This in part reflects the lack of clarity over the values justifying the BE.

This project will scope three general projects that would identify, analyse and reconcile those values (from UN Global Compact to the Social License to Operate), integrate the range of BE governance activities in a ‘BE Integrity System’, and explore the various options for certification of BE products that will add to the integrity system’s strength.
