The Ocean Resilience Innovation Challenge (ORIC) is a crucial component of ORRAA’s platform to build a pipeline of investable projects. It is driven from the ground-up, with projects delivering a genuine impact in local communities, while also mitigating ocean and climate risks.

ORRAA is inviting proposals  from individual organisations or consortiums across public, private, local civil society, international NGOs and academia. Both experienced implementers as well as start-ups, hubs and accelerators from the Global North and South are encouraged to apply.

We are looking for innovative and scalable finance and insurance products that help drive investment in coastal natural capital that reduce ocean risk and make vulnerable coastal people more  resilient. The initiatives must also  include a focus on gender, equity and human rights, and protect or enhance biodiversity.
