BLUE FINANCE DEVELOPS SOLUTIONS FOR MANAGEMENT OF MARINE PROTECTED AREAS
Blue finance is a social enterprise with expertise and a track record in management and sustainable financing of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs).
Blue finance’s objective is to improve the management of at least twenty MPAs by 2030.
Our approach relies on a proven concept of co-management lease for MPAs with tangible revenue models, leveraged by blended finance and empowering local communities.
Blue finance works with Governments, local stakeholders, donors and investors to design, finance and implement joint partnerships and blended finance solutions for the collaborative management of MPAs.
