Description: 

The ocean economy is a cornerstone of the global economy, contributing trillions each year. Despite this, the sector is drastically underinvested, with just 1% of the ocean economy’s total value invested in sustainable projects to date. With climate change, pollution and overfishing putting mounting pressure on the ocean, it is crucial to protect and manage human activity on the ocean. To do this effectively and achieve a sustainable ocean economy, significantly greater finance needs to be made available.
