This Blue Paper, which examines the role of equity in securing a sustainable ocean economy, comes at an extremely relevant time. Increasingly we are witnessing the social unrest triggered by policies or decisions perceived to be unfair or corrupt. To secure a sustainable ocean economy that meets the needs of current and future generations, we must put people at the centre and find ways to more fairly share the benefits associated with the development of ocean industries. This paper highlights that we still have a long way to go but sets out a clear pathway that we can begin to implement now.
