ORRAA’s aim is to drive $500 million of investment into nature-based solutions by 2030, and surface at least 50 novel finance products by 2030, positively impacting the resilience of at least 250 million people in coastal areas around the world. To reach these goals, we support a number of projects developed with coastal communities and delivered by our members and partners. We also surface and grow a number of innovative community-led solutions through our Ocean Resilience Innovation Challenge.
ORRAA’s work aims to contribute to the delivery of the United Nations Sustainable Delivery Goals (SDGs) – an essential framework to guide lasting, positive change. ORRAA projects support, amongst others, the following SDGs:
ORRAA’s projects will also contribute to the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, by increasing knowledge and awareness around emerging ocean-derived risks, and deepening discussions at the science-policy-practice interface on how to enhance ocean resilience in the 21st century.
