RESEARCH PROGRAM #5:

SUSTAINABLE OFFSHORE DEVELOPMENTS

Using multidisciplinary analysis and tools to create workable design options for sustainable blue economy operations

The objective of the Sustainable Offshore Developments program (program 5), is to profile and advocate for the regulatory frameworks that will provide confidence for aquaculture and renewable energy industry to invest and for the public to be confident that offshore developments operate to the highest environmental standards for sustainability and ecosystem integrity.

Research Program Expected Outcomes

OUTCOME 1

Assessment of the fit of legislative and policy frameworks for blue economy activities, evaluation of mechanisms in relation to management of risks in the implementation of integrated management, and development and application of policy tools to assess the effectiveness in meeting policy objectives.

OUTCOME 2

An integrated and planned approach to managing supply chains that includes the identification of potential synergies between marine and offshore energy and aquaculture systems that results in cost effectiveness. Proposing integrated systems and processes for supporting marine and offshore energy and aquaculture supply chain operations, including the proposed co-located platform.

OUTCOME 3

State of the blue economy reporting framework and regular reports. Mapping, assessing, and making recommendations for improvement to the Blue Economy Integrity Systems.

OUTCOME 4

Establishment of cost effective and robust economic assessments, and environmental management accounting systems for blue economy activities.

OUTCOME 5

Establishment of internal CRC research engagement and extension process. Establishment of research user forums and industry workshop to enhance capacity.
