8 EMD Sustainable growth from the oceans, seas and coasts: blue growth Prof. Frederic CADET, Vice-President of Regional Council of La Réunion 8 Maritime space of Indian Ocean An implementation of « Grenelle de la mer »: the southern Indian ocean blue book “This Southern Indian Ocean Blue Book provides the basis for a number of mid and long-term initiatives planned by the French public authorities in this part of the world.” Five strategic guidelines:  Maritime governance,  Economic development in the fishing and energy industries,  Protection of the natural marine environment,  Research and Innovation in marine sciences,  Government action to defend France’s sovereign interests in the region

9 EMD Sustainable growth from the oceans, seas and coasts: blue growth Prof. Frederic CADET, Vice-President of Regional Council of La Réunion 9 Ocean, one of the main asset of La Réunion  A french maritime space of 2.8 million of square km (km 2 )  Hotspots of Biodiversity for coastal and deep-sea ecosystems (in-shore and off- shore) in the tropical zone  A strategic maritime space

10 EMD Sustainable growth from the oceans, seas and coasts: blue growth Prof. Frederic CADET, Vice-President of Regional Council of La Réunion 10 What is the strategic vision of The Regional Council of La Réunion ? A strategic vision drived by the following characteristics:  high potential for regional cooperation  creation of new contents with high added value  multiple activities for the territory  dynamism and sustainability

11 EMD Sustainable growth from the oceans, seas and coasts: blue growth Prof. Frederic CADET, Vice-President of Regional Council of La Réunion 11 A strategic vision from Regional Council of La Réunion The six key Clusters for technologic and economic development are :  Biotechnologies (e.g. Biofuel)  Energy (e.g Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion)  Sea-Fishing-Aquaculture-Water (e.g. Marine Innovative platform )  Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) (e.g. SEAS-OI, Environmental Monitoring Satellite Aided station)  Tourism (Pole of excellence)  Environment The development of Clusters in sectors that offer promises for the future in terms of growth, productivity and job creation is a priority. All these Clusters have in common and mutual interest: The Ocean
