Increasing funding for development in Blue economy sector

26-February-2018
Conference ends on high note

The outcome of a conference aimed at seeking ways to increase funding for development in the Blue economy sector will be significant for Seychelles, Vice President Vincent Meriton has said.
As a result of the conference, the country will benefit through more funding and other support to develop sustainable investments projects in the Blue economy sector, Mr Meriton said.
The vice-president said this on Friday during a press meeting at the end of the two-day conference which was held here last week.
Additional to that, VP Meriton said Seychelles has benefited greatly from a wealth of experience, sharing its own and learning from others’ best practices and we have also strengthened and boosted our image as more countries have learnt and appreciated our effort in developing the Blue economy sector.
“It is now up to us to ensure that resolutions and other outcomes of the conference are followed up, discussed and analysed on the local as well as regional level,” VP Meriton stressed.
Laura Tuck, the vice-president for Sustainable Development at the World Bank (WB) as well as Mark Lundell and Seychelles’ ambassador for climate change at the UN, Ronny Jumeau, were also among those who answered the questions from the different press.
Ms Tuck for her part expressed heartfelt gratitude to the government of Seychelles for co-hosting the conference with the WB noted that it was not because Seychelles is so generous but because it is a leader and a model in how to build an economy based on the Blue economy principles.
“The Blue economy is based on the idea that we want to grow economic and social outcomes while at the same time ensuring we do not degrade or deplete the natural resources of the ocean. Seychelles is recognising that ocean health is ocean wealth,” Ms Tuck pointed out.
As example she highlighted Seychelles initiatives to establish marine spatial plan, marine protected areas, its support for investments through public private partnerships in marine economy, fish processing and other kind of activities outside the fisheries sector all with the aim of improving incomes and livelihoods of the people.
She went on to note that the WB has been pleased to also support projects related to the Blue economy sector and promote sustainable fisheries, tourism and build livelihoods in the seafood value chain and other sectors of the economy.
“During the conference we covered different sectors from food security, sustainable fishing, marine pollution to marine tourism,” Ms Tuck pointed out, citing and highlighting climate change as a top WB priority.
“We have committed to increasing the share of projects we do that have climate benefits and we have also committed to having at least 28% of our total lending by 2020 and we are already between 22 and 24% and we are working across all the sectors. We are for instance promoting renewable energy, preparing climate- smart agriculture investment plans in 40 countries, preparing early warning systems over Africa to support a 100 million people,” Ms Tuck noted.
She added that the WB is working with 17 countries in West Africa on a country by country adaptation programme to address coastal erosion.
Fisheries was another key topic that was addressed at length in the conference, Ms Tuck explained, noting that as overfishing and depleting fish stocks is a big challenge globally it is important therefore for each country to understand where they are with their own fish stocks and to take these into account when they do their planning.
Ms Tuck affirmed that the WB has been working with many countries in that area and she stressed that the discussions at the conference have shown that it is possible to reduce stress on fish stocks and other marine resources while at the same time improving outcomes, profits and people’s livelihoods.
“We want to do this a lot more globally,” Ms Tuck stressed.
Marine pollution was the other hot topic at the conference and Ms Tuck said emphasis was on plastic in the oceans as she explained at the start of the conference.
“We need to get the private sector interested in investing in solid waste management as well as get it to think about how to reduce plastic packaging and micro-plastic which get into the food chain,” Ms Tuck added.
Stressing on the importance of the complementary role the public and private sector can play, Ms Tuck said emphasis was placed on the public sector getting all the conditions right like through clear, stable policies and regulatory frameworks, foundation infrastructure … which can help get the private sector started.
“The WB has an approach call maximising finance for development which gets the public sector to focus on the constraints of the private sector to try and bring in additional funding that is needed,” MS Tucker remarked.
She went on to stress that managing the oceans and their natural resources is key for the future and if we want to support the economy, the planet and the people who live on it, this is a critical area for investment.
She added that what is important is that all the different stakeholders and partners have come together to discuss a key issue.
“There were lots of good ideas, lots of information were shared and I think it was a highly successful conference. It has built on a conference we had last year in Mauritius,” Ms Tuck affirmed.
