Global experts convene to discuss Ocean Investment and Business Partnership
MetadataShow full item record
The need for significantly increased investment to achieve the targets under the UN Sustainable Development Goals, including SDG 14 Life below water, is well understood. The United Nations Devrelopment Programme (UNDP) cites a USD2.5 trillion gap in investments required to fully realize the SDGs, and it's unlikely that all of this financing will come from government and donor support.Private sector investment has a critical role to play in achieing the targets, with an opportunity to redirect billions of dollars of capital away from unsustainable investments towards sustainable, blue economy investments in East Asia.
