The Clingendael Institute in the Netherlands organised an online training programme on the Blue Economy for international diplomats (27 Feb – 10 Mar 2023) for which they invited Amit Jain, the Director of the NTU-SBF Centre for African Studies to make a presentation. Participants included 27 mid-career diplomats from over 20 small islands and coastal states. Amit presented a paper titled, Africa: The Blue Economy. His presentation was well received by the participants. “Very insightful presentation,” said one. “Expanded knowledge in Africa and its blue economy,” said another. A participant from Costa Rica said, “I really enjoyed the content of this presentation. The Caribbean faces similar challenges.”
