The Blue Hope TCP seeks to enhance the capacity of the countries of Turkey, Algeria and Tunisia, and their fisheries-dependent communities to inclusively develop multi-sectoral, sustainable “blue growth” investment plans. To this end, the project output is one multi-sectoral investment plan per country leveraging FAO’s Rural Investment Plan development framework and the Blue Growth Initiative approach for fostering sustainable, multi-sectoral socio-economic growth.
