This report is a result of SwAM Ocean, an international development cooperation programme being operated by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (SwAM). SwAM Ocean aims to contribute to poverty reduction through sustainable use of aquatic resources. To reach this goal we need a good understanding of the premises for enabling long-term blue growth in coastal communities. This report is part of a four-part series of studies of the topic.
As part of SwAM Ocean, four studies exploring the conditions for lifting coastal communities out of poverty are being conducted. These four studies investigate institutional and infrastructure factors affecting blue growth and social development at local level in developing countries.
