In relation to the latest developments on the spread of the coronavirus in Europe, the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) Regional Stakeholder Conference on Blue Economy, which was due to take place on 10-11 March 2020 in Barcelona was cancelled. Inputs from the stakeholders will be collected online. The consultation will close on 25 March 2020.
Inputs from stakeholders will help identify future capacity building and technical assistance needs; priority themes for joint action to promote the sustainable blue economy financing principles and practices; mobilize research and foster innovation in the blue economy, and continue to enhance cooperation at regional level.
The input received will be uploaded anonymously, twice a week, and will be visible on the UfM Mediterranean Blue Economy Stakeholder Platform (http://www.medblueconomyplatform.org).
