Greening the Blue Economy in Pomorskie, Poland

image of Greening the Blue Economy in Pomorskie, Poland

As coastal area on the Baltic Sea in north-central Poland, Pomorskie faces unique challenges and opportunities associated with the transition to a green economy, a diversified economy, growing population and significant natural resources. This report focuses on the sustainable development of the oceans and coastlines surrounding the region, known as the blue economy.

 

Based on an OECD survey designed to capture the needs and perceptions of local employers (mostly of small- and medium-sized enterprises [SME]), this report analyses the specific skills needed to support green growth in Pomorskie, and how related labour market and training programmes can be made more effective in supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Executive summary

As a coastal area on the Baltic Sea, Pomorskie faces unique challenges and opportunities associated with the transition to a green economy. This report focuses on the development of the blue economy, which is associated with sustainable development of the oceans and coastlines surrounding the region. While policy has evolved in Poland in congruence with increased European emphasis on low-carbon production, there has been increased fragmentation in the management of environmental and labour market policies at both the regional and national level. This is particularly true for the blue economy, where a variety of ministries are responsible for the management of different water resources and skills issues.
