The Center for the Blue Economy will develop a baseline assessment of the ocean economies of Kenya and Tanzania, which can be used as a foundation for developing blue economy strategies in each country.
The Center for the Blue Economy is committed to providing free, open-access data. Now regional managers along the Mid-Atlantic coast have a new tool: the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Vulnerability Data Portal.
