  "abstract": "<p>Executive Summary<br>\nBlue Growth is the expanding but sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods<br>\nand ocean ecosystem health. Blue Growth is expected to increase across all sectors in the North Atlantic over the<br>\nnext decade, involving new activities and additional locations for existing activities. Coordinating these activities<br>\nand ensuring sustainability can present significant challenges. The potential for collaboration across Blue Economy<br>\nsectors to enhance synergies and avoid conflicts is central to effective marine spatial planning.<br>\nWell-managed Blue Growth could make important contributions towards achieving United Nations Sustainable<br>\nDevelopment Goals (SDGs) including SDG2: Zero Hunger; SDG7: Affordable and Clean Energy; SDG8: Decent Work<br>\nand Economic Growth, and SDG14: a healthy marine environment.<br>\nImproved science and technology are key to ensuring that Blue Growth is sustainable, particularly in the face of<br>\nchanging climatic and marine conditions. Greater integration between marine sectors is being actively fostered<br>\nthrough several ongoing and newly-established initiatives, including the United Nations&rsquo; &lsquo;Decade of Ocean<br>\nScience for Sustainable Development&rsquo; and a new international treaty for conservation and sustainable use of<br>\nmarine biological diversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction.<br>\nThe ATLAS project is developing a knowledge base to inform the development of international policies to ensure<br>\ndeep-sea Atlantic resources are managed effectively. This in turn will contribute to the European Commission&rsquo;s<br>\nlong-term Blue Growth strategy.</p>",
