Background on Blue Prosperity

The Blue Prosperity Program is a partnership between the Waitt Foundation, a NGO focused on marine protection and sustainable marine resource use, and UCLA, headed by the IoES. The program draws on expertise from across UCLA’s campus, working to develop a toolkit of strategies for sustainable development of small island’s blue economies. Blue Prosperity at UCLA exists as a component of the Waitt Foundation’s larger Blue Prosperity Coalition.
