The Earth is in trouble. But the ocean can help.

When it comes to tackling climate change and the biodiversity crisis, the ocean and the world’s coastlines offer many solutions. Yet these solutions don’t receive anywhere near enough money to realize them. And while governments and philanthropists should provide more funding, they can’t meet the challenge alone. Investments from the private sector are equally key to success.

Entrepreneurs across the world need support to integrate restoration and conservation into sustainable businesses. Only then can we create profit, both for people and for planet.

Join Dorothée Herr – manager of the IUCN’s Blue Natural Capital Financing Facility – to discover the reasons to invest in the ocean. In Investing For Ocean Impact we’ll talk to leading experts, global policymakers, and investment movers and shakers. We’ll also dive into real life, working examples of Nature-based Solutions, from seaweed farms to marine protected areas, and show how these are projects that investors can indeed get behind.

The time to invest in our ocean is now. Subscribe, wherever you get your podcasts, so that you never miss an episode.

    Nature-based Solutions: investments for the planet

    Nature-based Solutions: investments for the planet

    Nature-based Solutions are neither wind farms nor sustainable engineering. And they are more than your usual conservation efforts. Instead, they’re projects based on managing real ecosystems - with wide societal benefits, positive financial impacts, and a chance to create a more sustainable future.

    In this episode, BNCFF manager Dorothée Herr explores the ideas behind Nature-based Solutions as long-term investments, discusses the case study of an extraordinary marine reserve in the Philippines, and discovers how projects like these can be good for people, planet, and profit.

    A new future for ocean financing

    A new future for ocean financing

    The oceans today face extraordinary threats. But the funding to conserve and restore them is currently extremely limited. We need to make a fundamental shift in how we think about financing ocean conservation.

    In this first episode, BNCFF manager Dorothée Herr will introduce the world of blended finance; how private sector money unites with public and philanthropy to bridge the funding gap.

    With special thanks to Peter Thomson, the United Nations Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for the Ocean; Torsten Thiele from the Global Ocean Trust; and Melissa Walsh from the Asian Development Bank.
