Project Portfolio Pipeline

ORRAA’s Project Portfolio Pipeline identifies, accelerates and scales innovative finance and insurance products that invest into coastal and ocean natural capital in the Global South.   

Projects are activated through Calls for Proposals, our Ocean Resilience Innovation Challenge (ORIC); and developed by and with coastal communities, members and partners. 

The pipeline also supports the development of benchmarks and metrics to help measure and manage ocean risk; and produces science and research that informs ocean resilience solutions.
