ORRAA’s mission is to drive investment into coastal and ocean natural capital through the development of innovative finance solutions that reduce vulnerability and build resilience in the most exposed and climate-vulnerable regions and communities.
To do this ORRAA is catalysing the investment of at least US$500 million into coastal and ocean natural capital through the development and deployment of financial products that build the resilience of 250 million climate vulnerable coastal people, by 2030
Through Calls for Proposals, the Ocean Resilience Innovation Challenge (ORIC), and broader engagement, ORRAA surfaces innovative finance and insurance products developed with coastal communities and delivered by ORRAA members and partners.
The Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance (ORRAA) is the only multi-stakeholder convenor connecting the international finance and insurance sectors, governments, non-profits and stakeholders from the Global South focused on driving financial innovations to deliver a sustainable and equitable blue economy and more resilient coastal communities. Our mission is to build the resilience of 250 million climate vulnerable coastal people by 2030, by deploying at least USD$500 million of investment into coastal and ocean resilience through the development of at least 50 novel finance and insurance products.
To achieve these objectives, ORRAA has developed a Project Portfolio Pipeline to catalyse, scale, and accelerate investment into coastal and marine natural capital. Projects are activated through Calls for Proposals, our Ocean Resilience Innovation Challenge (ORIC); and developed by and with coastal communities, members, and partners. The pipeline also supports the development of benchmarks and metrics to help measure and manage ocean risk; and produces science and research that informs ocean resilience solutions.
This form is used by ORRAA to collect project and other investment opportunities, with the ultimate goal to match project opportunities with the assistance they need (technical assistance, grant funding, investment etc.) to deliver a sustainable and equitable blue economy and more resilient coastal communities.
Opportunities submitted through this form will not be immediately considered for funding, but are stored and assessed against funding opportunities as they arise. Opportunities may also be shared with other funders as appropriate.
