The economy of the sea
London - Arab Today

With 70% of our planet covered by ocean, many global economies reliant on fishing, transport, naval security, tourism, oil and gas and renewable energy and 90% of the world’s trade conducted by sea, the importance of the ‘blue economy’ cannot be ignored.

PwC has launched Circumnavigation: An integrated approach to the economy of the sea to help us better understand the issues, tremendous potential and un-tapped resources of the world’s oceans.

Over the last 10 years, PwC Portugal has been assessing the usage of the seas as part of the international HELM project. The findings of this extensive research and data collection are highlighted in this report which showcases why an integrated approach is key to achieve sustainable growth and development of the sea economy. Three essential elements required to put an integrated approach into action are identified, namely: the right framework, the right people, and the right technology and equipment.

The PwC report also outlines the many challenges around the sea economy including timescales – as sea timelines are longer than the new digital world is happy to tolerate and provides a snapshot on the state of play in maritime industries and maritime countries. More importantly, it brings to light the lack of global awareness on the scale of the opportunity around the blue economy, meaning that investment in this area is seen as a low priority, both by governments and businesses alike.

“But, the advantages of ‘blue’ thinking is clear,” says Miguel Marques, who leads PwC’s Economy of the Sea thought leadership project. “It’s a more sustainable and inclusive approach, it promotes growth and employment, and it fosters innovation and allows mature economies to secure more value from their maritime zones, and opens up new opportunities for developing economies.”

Some countries are ahead of the pack, pioneering an integrated and holistic approach to their blue economy; and the HELM tool is designed to help other governments, industries, policy-makers and coastal communities move towards the goal of an integrated approach.
