BLUE ECONOMY Increasing Long term Benefits of the Sustainable Use of Marine Resources for Small Island Developing States and Coastal Least Developed Countries

This report was drafted by a working group of United Nations entities, the world Bank, and other stakeholders to suggest a common understanding of the blue economy; to highlight the importance of such an approach, particularly for small island developing states and coastal least developed countries; to identify some of the key challenges its adoption poses; and to suggest some broad next steps that are called for in order to ensure its implementation.

Climate Forecasting for Small Island Nations - 2016

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are often affected by weather extremes and climate change, including the increased severity of cyclones, storm surges, heavy rains, droughts, sea-level rise and ocean acidification. Investments in disaster risk reduction, including early warning systems and adaptation measures for critical sectors, are therefore critical for building resilient communities and facilitating sustainable development.

Convergence of health expenditure in Africa.pdf

To address the problem of underfunding of health systems in SSA the Abuja Declaration of 2001 set a target to allocate 15% of a country’s budget to public health expenditure. However there is no empirical evidence on whether SSA countries are converging or diverging from the target and whether there is significant effect of the Abuja instrument on other health expenditure indicators...

Global Ocean Science Report The Current Status of Ocean Science around the World.pdf

Global Ocean Science Report - The Current Status of Ocean Science around the World

The Global Ocean Science Report (GOSR) assesses for the first time the status and trends in ocean science capacity around the world. The Report offers a global record of who, how, and where ocean science is conducted: generating knowledge, helping to protect ocean health, and empowering society to support sustainable ocean management in the framework of the United Nations Agenda 2030. The Global Ocean Science Report identifies and quantifies the key elements of ocean science at the national, regional and global scales, including workforce, infrastructure and publications. This is the first collective attempt to systematically highlight opportunities as well as capacity gaps to advance international collaboration in ocean science and technology. This Report is a resource for scientist, academics, policy makers, and other stakeholders seeking to harness the potential of ocean science to address global challenges, the Report makes a case for increased funding in view of the ocean’s economic importance and other social and scientific challenges (e.g. the UN Sustainable Development Goals)

Harnessing fishery independent indicators to aid management of data poor fisheries weighing habitat and fishing effects.pdf

State indicators, e.g., mean size and trophic level of the fish assemblage, can provide important insights into the effects of fishing on ecosystems and the resource potential of the fishery. On coral reefs, few
studies have examined the relative effects of fishing and other drivers, such as habitat, on these indicators. In light of habitat heterogeneity and increasing habitat degradation, this lack of understanding limits the usefulness of indicators for monitoring the effect of fishery management actions.

Herbivore cross-scale redundancy supports response diversity and promotes coral reef resilienceNash et al. JAE 2016.pdf

Nash et al. Ecosphere 2016 The resilience of an ecosystem can be defined as its capacity to absorb disturbances while maintaining structure and function (Holling 1973). It has proved challenging to predict
ecosystem resilience because its loss may only be apparent when thresholds are reached and the system
moves to an alternate state (Bellwood et al. 2004).
