On EarthDay, 22 April 2024, Salesforce unveiled that ORRAA has been selected in the Salesforce Accelerator – AI for Impact on climate action!

The Accelerator will support ORRAA’s work to develop “The Octopus Desk,” a global blue finance marketplace using AI to improve matching investors with projects and identification of project sites, helping ORRAA build resilience for 250 million climate-vulnerable coastal people by 2030.
 
ORRAA’s Executive Director, Karen Sack, said: “We’re thrilled to have been selected by Salesforce as part of their AI for Impact accelerator. We’re committed to our goal of activating at least USD$500 million of investment into coastal and ocean nature-based solutions by 2030, to help build the resilience of at least 250 million climate vulnerable coastal people. Our collaboration with Investable Oceans to develop The Octopus Desk and the support we will receive from Salesforce around responsible AI use, data strategy and technical architecture, combined with their project funding, will help us make strides towards achieving this ambitious goal.”
