Blue Finance

Projet: Blue Finance

Project Director: Nicolas Pascal

Zone d'Étude: Barbados, St Kitts & Nevis, Antigua & Barbuda, Bahamas and Martinique.


Using the Private Sector to help conserve and protect the planet's marine ecosystems

The Blue Finance project is designed to respond to Aichi Target 20 from the Convention on Biological Diversity’s Strategic Plan for Biodiversity 2011-2010, to explore urgently new and innovative financial mechanisms at all levels of marine conservation management.

Very few innovative financial instruments have been tested on the marine environment and even less on the reef ecosystem, despite the existence of suitable conditions for their establishment. The Blue Finance Project will be among the first to explore new concepts on two pilot sites, which will be replicated in other places.


  • To prove that investing in nature makes financial sense, while staying true to the triple bottom line – environmental, financial and social returns
  • To provide greater investment for nature conservation
