There is immense traction in the blue economy to figure on the agenda of the G20—an international forum focused on reviving international trade and the global market in a post-pandemic world. As the G20’s focus has shifted from business-as-usual models to sustainable businesses, the integrated development and sustainable growth of their ocean economies can be supported and strengthened. This Policy Brief offers policy recommendations that can be replicated and adopted from the successful initiatives of G20 members. Such a regenerative and sustainable growth strategy could permeate all sectors, including livelihoods, tourism, fisheries, the ocean economy, maritime security, and climate action. The brief also describes the barriers to financing a sustainable ocean economy and suggests pathways to ensure that the benefits of the ocean are available to all.
