The high-level meeting on “Financing Ocean-based Climate Solutions” will focus on the role of governments, companies and financial institutions in securing the necessary financing for the ocean to contribute to a resilient, equitable and net-zero emissions future.
The meeting, co-hosted online by the UN Global Compact Sustainable Ocean Business Action Platform and IDB Invest, will take place on the margins of the 2021 World Bank Spring Meetings. It is the first high-level meeting on the UN Global Compact “Blue Road to COP 26”, exploring several ocean-based climate solutions and their drivers. The outcomes of these sessions will serve as input to the Sustainable Ocean Business Action Platform’s COP 26 recommendations on the role of the ocean in climate action.
