The aim is to complete the data collection and index calculation for allarchipelagic and island states around the world.
Blue Economy Development Index (BEDI) is a tool that can be utilized to manage sustainable marine resource usage by determining if the current use patterns are meeting national economic, environmental and social objectives eliciting necessary developmental changes through informed policy development and effective management schemes. This is accomplished by combining economic, social and environmental data to create a holistic assessment of development over time at national, regional and international scales. By operationalizing the BEDI, AIS nations can work together through collaborative partnerships by targeting areas of weakness in the blue economy identified through use of the BEDI, which is critical when utilizing resources in the highly interconnected spaces of coastal and marine areas.
