Show Me the Money! Funding the Ocean Decade | Ocean Decade Show

October 6, 2022

A look at how exactly the Decade will be funded!

This month on The Ocean Decade Show it's all about the money! As the Ocean Decade seeks to "transform" the ocean, one key piece is transforming the way that ocean work is funded. Mark Spalding, the President of The Ocean Foundation, joins Taylor this month to discuss where we are for funding the Ocean Decade versus where we need to be and the role of different sectors in addressing the Decade's financing gap. Come for the in depth Blue Economy discussions, and stay to try to hear Taylor accurately pronounce "The Bouknadel Statement", a key ocean finance document released ahead of the UN Ocean Conference in summer 2022.
