MetadataShow full item record
Member economies of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) have put increased emphasis on the so-called "blue economy" with the belief that laying the foundation for healthy and resilient marine and ocean resources will be just as critical to ensuring inclusive growth across the region. According to the Departments of Agriculture (DA) and Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), this was the first time the Apec meetings on food security included a session on the blue economy, which refers to a " developmental approach anchored on sustainable development and utilization of marine resources and ecosystems in Apec."
