Capacity development is a key element of the Blue Solutions Initiative. Through different formats and cooperation with various partner institutions, the Blue Solutions Initiative seeks to enhance capacities for scaling up success, provide learning opportunities and trainings on Blue Solutions themes, and support policy processes to facilitate Blue Solutions.

The Blue Solutions Initiative adapted and developed three trainings (Integration of ecosystem services into marine planning (Blue IES), climate change adaptation in the marine and coastal realm (Blue CCA) as well as marine and coastal spatial planning and management (Blue Planning in Practice). In the databank below further recommendable training opportunities related to different themes are listed.
