After a 7-year slowdown in economic growth in the previous decade, LAC opened this decade with the adverse effects of Covid. The economic slowdown and the health crisis jeopardized the SDGs’ implementation in the region. In this chapter, the authors revisit the old question of whether the previous decade of LAC is another lost decade, mainly adding the environmental dimension to the economic and social dimension. In this line, the latest reports show that SDGs related to the biosphere capacity like SDGs 6 (water), 13 (greenhouse gases), 14 (blue biodiversity), and 15 (terrestrial ecosystems) have stalled. However, a higher diversity of pathways can be observed. To illustrate different trajectories, their trade-offs, and complementarities, the focus is on the transitions to the blue economy in a selection of small island developing states (SIDS) in Latin America and the Caribbean.
