[Capacity Building and Funding Opportunity] ASEAN Blue Innovation Challenge

17 April - 30 June

The ASEAN Blue Innovation Challenge is a unique initiative aimed at promoting the blue economy in ASEAN countries and Timor-Leste.

This challenge seeks to identify, finance, and support innovative solutions for the conservation and sustainable management of marine ecosystems, coastal areas, and freshwater resources. Beyond financial support, it also connects innovators with potential stakeholders, including investors and business entities.

Topics Addressed

Climate Issues Climate change poses significant challenges to critical sectors of the blue economy, such as fisheries, aquaculture, and tourism. Traditional approaches alone are insufficient, necessitating novel solutions. Innovators, with their adaptability and inventive spirit, are pivotal in developing transformative technologies to mitigate and adapt to climate impacts, fostering a more sustainable future.

Marine Plastic Pollution Oceans face a serious plastic pollution problem, harming marine life and ecosystems and affecting the food chain. Traditional methods like beach clean-ups and recycling help, but are not enough to tackle the millions of tons of plastic entering the oceans every year. Fresh ideas from innovators, who think differently and challenge old methods, are crucial.

Sustainable Fisheries The rising global demand for fish has driven the development of fishing technology, but this has led to overexploitation and degradation of fishery resources. Innovators hold the key to developing technologies and solutions that ensure healthy fish stocks and thriving local communities for generations to come.

Sustainable Tourism Unsustainable tourism management in coastal, freshwater, and marine zones often harms delicate environments, exploiting resources and contributing to pollution. Innovation is crucial for shifting towards sustainable practices, including eco-friendly lodging, low-impact transportation, empowering local communities, and promoting regenerative tourism models.
