About 40 percent of the world’s population lives within 100 kilometers of the coast, and overall, the world’s coastal population is increasing faster than the total global population. Coastal ecosystem services are particularly vulnerable to global environmental changes, as are the coastal communities that depend directly on them. To address these changes, ensure the well-being of coastal communities, and stimulate the development of economic activities, actions to inform and share best practices are important. With this in mind, Blue Economy and Blue Transformation become major themes. The goal of Blue Life Hub is to inform and network between players in the Mediterranean and Africa, areas that have very important commonalities and shared interests.
