The Transformation of Lebanon’s Blue Economy by 2024

The Hariri Foundation for Sustainable Human Development has partnered with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) to implement the Blue Economy component in Lebanon. This initiative will focus on promoting sustainable practices and policies that benefit Lebanon’s economy while protecting the environment.

The partnership will take place at both national and local levels, with Saida serving as a case study. The main goal of this partnership is to create a circular, environmentally resilient, and prosperous Blue Economy in Lebanon. One of the key activities within this partnership is the organization of Lebanon’s first “National Blue Economy Conference,” which will take place on May 2nd in Beirut, Lebanon.

This conference aims to bring together high-level political and technical experts to discuss ways to transition towards a sustainable Blue Economy in Lebanon. The conference will also facilitate partnerships and collaboration between key stakeholders from both the public and private sectors, as well as academic institutions and civil society. By engaging local communities in promoting sustainable practices, the conference hopes to create momentum for sustainable development in Lebanon.

Furthermore, the conference will highlight the importance of coastal cities and their role in promoting sustainable practices. The work carried out in Saida will be showcased to demonstrate how local actions can contribute to long-term sustainability goals for the Blue Economy in Lebanon. Following the conference, on-ground activities and a city-wide validation process of the local action plan on Blue Economy in Saida will take place, emphasizing multi-actor engagement and multi-level governance as crucial components of achieving sustainability goals.
