Virtual Event: The Rising Blue Dollar: Sustainable Ocean Financing for Marine Conservation

Please note, this event has now passed. Read an event summary here

The Commonwealth has a huge stake in the future of our ocean, together covering more than one-third (35%) of national marine waters globally. However, Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) often suffer from inadequate and unsustainable funding, putting conservation efforts at risk. More than 60% of existing MPAs in the world have reported inadequate budgets for basic management and compliance.

This webinar will:

  • Provide an overview of the sustainable financing concept for the effective management of MPAs.
  • Showcase good and best practice case studies from two project sites.
  • Elaborate how financial resilience needs to be built in, to move forward in a post COVID-19 world.

Panelists

The webinar is part of a wider series of virtual events that promote collaboration through the sharing of experiences, best practices and solutions on ocean issues. They also offer the opportunity to reflect on how to move forward with ocean management in a post-COVID-19 world.
