Developing Countries need “concrete deliverables” from the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development.  This initial draft document describes seven possible deliverables that form a circular economy (cradle-to-cradle sustainability) as well as circular Development-Science-Development. 

The seven possible deliverables address:
-Seafood;
-Human waste resource recovery;
-Solid waste resource recovery;
-Other public health;
-Sustainable energy;
-Sustainable ocean biomass-for-energy;
-CO2 sequestration; and Floating land. 

The document first presents an overview of the seven systems, then goes provides some examples and references for each of them. Finally, it requests additions of systems, analyses, and suggestions for targets and indicators. This is an early draft of a living document welcoming more deliverables, co-authors, and signatories.  Signatories are people and organizations that notice some good ideas herein and/or want to add more.
