Blue-Green IC Toolbox
The Blue-Green IC Toolbox is to help decision makers to channel actions and change towards transition to a sustainable blue-green economy.
The number of challenges our societies must address on land and ocean is often overwhelming (climate change, sea level rise). As nearly 40% of the world’ population depends on marine and coastal biodiversity for their livelihoods, a blue-green wide approach needs to be adopted to address the resilience and adaptation to climate change, improve human well-being. The ocean space could bring new opportunities for harvesting renewable energy and growing food. The ICR Lab research innovative solutions such as amphibious homes designed to float when the water level rise, floating modular interconnected systems to support a green economy, cargo ships which could act as floating microgrids to power islands and coastal areas for disaster preparedness and recovery.
