The Commonwealth Secretariat is organising a webinar to discuss key resources for ocean climate finance, types of funding, investment models, fund acquisition best practices and tools for funding-seekers, supported by relevant case studies.

In November last year, the Commonwealth Secretariat appointed a consortium of experts (Blue Praxis) to advise and support Commonwealth countries developing climate finance proposals to tackle ocean-related issues. This webinar is a summary of their advice to date. 


The webinar will be repeated on 31 March, 11:00pm - 00:30am BST (1 April). Register to attend this session.
