Abstract

Of the 53 countries and territories that make up Sub-Saharan Africa, 32 are coastal states. There are 13 million square km of maritime zones, and more than 90% of the region’s exports and imports come by sea. The Blue Economy in Sub-Saharan Africa: Working for a Sustainable Future provides, for the first time, a study of the constraints and opportunities the blue economy offers for sub-Saharan Africa. Dr. Charles Colgan co-authored chapter 10, “Measuring the Blue Economy,” along with Vivian Louis Forbes and Iddi Mwanyoka. This chapter also stems from a research project funded by the World Wildlife Federation with Dr. Colgan as principle investigator setting a baseline for measuring the blue economies of Kenya and Tanzania. The Blue Economy in Sub-Saharan Africa: Working for a Sustainable Future, edited By Donald Sparks, published June 17, 2021 by Routledge.
