Leadership in research, education, and analysis to promote a sustainable ocean and coastal economy (the Blue Economy)

The "Blue Economy" comprises the economic activities and supporting institutions, relationships, and choices that create sustainable wealth from the world’s oceans and coasts. The Center examines ways that ocean and coastal resources can support economic development that provide decent livelihoods and maintains, restores, and enhances the critical coastal and marine ecosystems that provide the foundations for human wellness and prosperity.

The Center for the Blue Economy is based at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies and is closely affiliated with the Institute’s Master of Arts in International Environmental Policy and its Ocean and Coastal Resource Management specialization.
