  1. Maritime Policy and BLUE GROWTH Sustainablegrowthfrom the oceans, seas, and coasts Haitze Siemers DG MARE European Commission Argonowski CC BY SA 3.0, 2008

  2. Competitiveness of maritime activities An industrialpolicy for the globalisation era Development of necessaryskills Agenda for new skills and jobs Blue Growth Europe 2020 Development of innovativesectors An Innovation Union A resource Efficient Europe Sustainabledevelopment of maritime economy Blue Growth

  3. Blue Growth Innovation Economic Growth Sustainability + Employment Blue Growth

  4. Supporting economic activities for coastal regions and communities Coastal regions home to over 205 million people 88 million people work there The blue economy represents nearly €500 billion GVA and 5.6 million jobs Blue Growth Hans Hillewaert CC BY SA 3.0, 2008

  5. A picture of the maritime economy Blue Growth study Mature, emerging and prospective sectors Assessment of strengths and weaknesses Policy considerations Blue Growth

  6. Activities with high growth and employment prospects Mature economic activities Coastal tourism and yachting Emerging sectors Offshore oil and gas Cruise tourism Coastal protection Sectors in pre-development phase Offshore wind Short sea shipping Marine monitoring and surveillance Ocean renewable energy Marine aquatic products Marine mineral mining Blue biotechnology Blue Growth Manuel Zublena, 2007

  7. Foresight growth scenarios 2030 2020 2015 Looking ahead

  8. Framework conditions for growth – drivers & bottlenecks Blue Growth Ross, CC BY SA 2.0, 2008

  9. Blue Growth CommunicationSeptember 2012 • Link to Europe 2020 • Sea Basins • Growth Policies (Short Sea Shipping, LeaderShip, innovation, research, technology) • Specific objectives: • Aquaculture • Maritime Tourism • Blue Biotech • Seabed mining • Ocean Energy

  10. The Limassol Declaration8 October 2012 • Builds on Europe 2020 • From Concept to Delivery • Link to Blue Book 2007 • Maritime Policy agenda for next 5 years + • Innovation • Sustainability, Growth, Jobs • Access to finance: MFF 2014-2020

  11. Maritime Spatial Planning (and ICZM) • Enable Growth at sea – harness potential • Sustainability • EU objectives • Human activities at sea are at the core

  12. Study on economic effects of MSP (estimates): • Lower coordination cost • Reduced Administrative costs • Lower transaction costs: 400 million – 1,8 billion euros in 2030 • Enhanced investment climate: 155 million – 1.6 billion euros in 2030

  13. Why EU action? Added value: • Supports and strengthensongoingdevelopment • Cross-border cooperation • Seamlessintegration • Efficiency gain, transparency, predictability, stability No interest: • Micromanagement • Addingneedlessregulation

  14. Examples • Energy • North Sea offshore grid • Re-use of oil platforms • Interaction with shipping, fisheries, MPAs • Needs to cut costs – planning, licensing, research etc. • Environment • MSFD implementation • Natura 2000 • Fisheries • Complementarities?

  15. A few fundamentals • Defining objectives to guide MSP • Developing MSP in a transparent manner • Stakeholder participation • Coordination and simplifying decision processes • Cross-border cooperation and consultation • Incorporating monitoring and evaluation in the planning process • Achieving coherence between terrestrial and maritime spatial planning • Strong data and knowledge base

  16. Blue Growth for the optimal use of marine resources Contribution of the blue economy to Europe's growth There is sustainable growth potential in all maritime areas - All we need is to make it work Blue Growth
