Protecting and investing in nature’s coastal and marine resources will pay dividends for countries, communities, biodiversity, and the climate.
Biodiversity is our planet’s wealth. It is a cornerstone of development, and its loss threatens many hard-won development gains.
Launched at COP27, the World Bank, with support from PROBLUE, announced a new Blue Economy program that will catalyze financing and provide an operational response to development challenges in coastal-marine areas of the African continent.
In fiscal 2022, PROBLUE approved 38 proposals amounting to more than $32 million, increasing its overall portfolio of technical activities to $94.14 million in support of 143 activities in 80 economies.
