Delivering sustainable economic growth
Posted Oct 05, 2019 | IIED Insights, Laura Kelly, Annabelle Bladon

In this case study for IIED Insights, Laura Kelly and Annabelle Bladon discuss a business model to bridge the marine conservation funding gap. They argue that, with a rigorous science-based approach, effective management and the right investments, MPAs can support ocean ecosystems, enhance resilience to climate change, and provide food and income for local communities.
