The Blue Economy Challenge: Reengineering Aquaculture

Posted in: Uncategorized

InnovationXchange, the Australian aid program, is currently inviting applications from around the world for the Blue Economy Challenge. The program will contribute to food security, nutrition, livelihoods and economic growth through aquaculture.

The challenge is open to solutions that have been demonstrated successfully elsewhere, but the application must make the case for success in the developing world and in particular the Indian Ocean.Australia’s aid program is focused on two key development outcomes- supporting private sector development and strengthening human development. To achieve this, the aid program invests in several priority areas including:

 Infrastructure, trade facilitation and international competitiveness
 Agriculture, fisheries and water
 Effective governanc
 Education and health
 Building resilience: humanitarian assistance, disaster risk reduction and social protection
 Gender equality and empowering women and girls

The challenge invites innovators, entrepreneurs, designers, NGOs and academics to rethink advances in aquaculture to provide solutions that ensure sustainable development and environmental sustainability. Deadline for submissions is 30 June 2016. For more information, visit The Blue Economy Challenge website.
