The Commonwealth Blue Economy series aims to support the development of the blue economy in Commonwealth member countries by providing a high-level assessment of the opportunities available for economic diversification and sustainable growth in small island developing states (SIDS).

This fifth volume in the series provides a high-level assessment of the opportunities available for economic diversification through the development of a blue biotechnology sector in SIDS for food, health products and pharmaceuticals. It examines relevant examples from around the world, and outlines specific enabling conditions that could assist in moving such a blue biotechnology sector towards becoming an economic reality where opportunities exist.

Enabling Conditions

The following section cannot in itself provide a template with which a future sustainable, high-value biotech sector can be built; however, it aims to raise a number of points that are important to ensure that value is obtained from the resources available. In addition, a number of models are suggested, based on the authors’ perception of international best practice, that could apply to developing and sustaining biotech activity in any given SIDS.
