SEArica Conference on the Black Sea: How can regional frameworks foster sustainable blue growth in the Black Sea basin?
In May 2019, during the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda for the Black Sea (SRIA) and the Common Maritime Agenda (CMA) for the Black Sea were launched, providing the framework for a more sustainable economic growth in the Black Sea basin.
The workshop aimed at providing a dialogue platform amongst EU and national policy-makers, and key regional stakeholders to encourage a debate that will allow for better understanding of the purpose of the main EU strategies focusing on the blue economy in the region. It also motivated regional stakeholders to become actively involved in the successful implementation of these frameworks’ objectives, and more importantly, bring forward their perspective concerning the Black Sea region.
After an opening by the European Commission, the event was designed as a round table. Representatives of the main sectors involved discussed with the coordinators the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on their sectors and regional communities. The workshop provided the opportunity to share the views of stakeholders on the short and mid-term perspectives and initiatives that could be taken to support the blue economy in the region.
The event complemented and supported the preparation of the stakeholders’ conference of the Common Maritime Agenda for the Black Sea that will take place on 10 December. In fact, during the Common Maritime Agenda conference concrete ideas for the identification of flagship projects as part of the sustainable and resilient recovery response were discussed with the stakeholders through specifically dedicated thematic sessions.
