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 will benefit Lebanon’s economy while protecting the environment.

The partnership will take place both at a national level and at a local level, with Saida being used as a case study. One of the key activities within this partnership is the organization of Lebanon’s first ‘National Blue Economy Conference’, which will be held under the patronage of the Ministry of Environment. The conference is scheduled to take place on May 2nd in Beirut, Lebanon.

The main objective of this conference is to bring together high-level political and technical experts to discuss ways to transition towards a more circular, environmentally resilient, and prosperous Blue Economy in Lebanon. By facilitating partnerships and collaboration between key stakeholders from both the public and private sectors, as well as academic institutions and civil society, the conference hopes to create momentum for sustainable development in the country.

Furthermore, the conference will highlight the importance of coastal cities and the engagement of local communities in promoting sustainable practices. The work carried out in Saida will be showcased to demonstrate how local actions can contribute to the long-term sustainability of the Blue Economy in Lebanon. Following
