The twenty-fourth session of the intergovernmental committee of experts of Southern Africa will be hosted by the government of Mauritius, on the theme “Blue economy, inclusive industrialization and economic development in Southern Africa”. The twenty-fourth session will focus on the opportunities and challenges of the blue economy in Southern Africa and feature discussions on its prospects for fostering inclusive industrialization and sustainable development in the region. Covering more than two thirds of the planet, oceans are fundamental to the livelihood of human well-being, regulating the earth’s climate, absorbing a significant proportion of human-generated emissions of carbon dioxide, providing food, facilitating trade and providing jobs and recreation for a large portion of the world’s population. The session is aimed at reviewing the social and economic conditions in Southern Africa; considering and endorsing the implementation of the program of work of the sub regional office for Southern Africa, its planned program of work and its budget for 2019; and reviewing the implementation of regional and international agendas, including the New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD) and other special initiatives in the sub region. In reviewing the work program, the delegates will make recommendations on ensuring that the development priorities of the sub region are fully reflected in the work of ECA to align the provision of technical support to member States and regional economic communities with these priorities.
