      Mozambique intends to join the global call-to-action movement launched by the United Nations and various bodies responsible for the sustainability of the oceans in the framework of the implementation of SDG14, establishing a permanent dialogue meeting, on biennial basis, designated the "GROWING BLUE" Conference. Within the thematic areas indicated in this document, the Conference approach will focus on the country and the western region of the Indian Ocean (geographical zone of Mozambique). The aim is for promoting consultation, alignment and knowledge sharing required to effectively fulfilling the commitments made within the framework of the implementation of SDG14.


      The edition of the first conference recognizes that knowledge based on scientific research and technology, is the basic key to the development of the Blue Economy. Considering the national and regional context, characterized by limited scientific knowledge and technological development, there is a need to target investment resources, both in training and in strengthening or building technical and institutional capacity enabling science and technology to feed into the development of a sustainable Blue Economy.

      The Blue Economy is considered to be the new frontier of the renaissance at a global level, which has led to an increasing number of countries being engaged in formulating Policies and Strategies that integrate the Blue Economy as a basis for socio-economic transformation through integrated and harmonized initiatives and strategies, as well as joint action among countries to develop the latent potential that the Seas and Oceans offer humanity.
