Product description


The book is strongly recommended for general readers, and will serve as a solid introduction to ocean ecology and economy for a wide audience...


President Michel has been at the forefront of the Blue Economy concept since the subject started making headline news, and this book therefore should be read by anyone seriously interested in the future of the oceans.--Sir James R. Mancham, KBE, Founding President of the Republic of Seychelles

About the Author

James Michel was president of the Republic of Seychelles from 2004-2017. He successfully steered his country through turbulence at the time of the global financial crisis, always keeping his sights on his bold vision of the new Seychelles. While ensuring the domestic development of the nation, Michel has been active on the international stage. He has rallied support to tackle piracy in the Indian Ocean, championed the cause of small island states, marshalled strong arguments to alert the rest of the world to the threats of climate change, and he has pioneered the concept of the Blue Economy. In 2013, Michel received the Sustainable Development Leadership Award at the Delhi Sustainable Development Summit, and in 2016 he was invited to become a Patron of the World Sustainability Forum. Michel has found time to record, in a series of books, his own insights on this evolving history. First came A Man of the People (2010), then Distant Horizons (2011) and Island Nation in a Global Sea (2014), prior to Rethinking the Oceans (2016).
