Capturing the Value of Coastal Wetlands through Blue Carbon Resilience Credits

Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance ([ORRAA](https://oceanriskalliance.org/)) partners [TNC](https://www.nature.org/en-us/) and [AXA XL](https://axaxl.com/) are working to transform coastal wetland management in the Caribbean by creating both a carbon and a resilience value for mangrove ecosystems, starting with The Bahamas. Blue Carbon Resilience Credits will allow corporations to offset their carbon footprint while supporting resilience and delivering multiple co-benefits for many island communities.

#BackBlue Ocean Finance Commitment

The #BackBlue Ocean Finance Commitment was launched ahead of COP26 in 2021. The United Nations-backed Commitment – the first of its kind to focus on the Ocean – is designed to incorporate the Ocean in finance and insurance decisions, especially with its importance in the fight against climate change. Leading financial institutions including AXA, Willis Towers Watson and Palladium were the first to sign up.

Weather Index-Based Parametric Insurance for Small-Scale Fishers

Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance ([ORRAA](https://oceanriskalliance.org/)) partners [Rare](https://rare.org/) and [WTW](https://www.wtwco.com/en-ID/) are piloting a parametric insurance solution for fishers in the Philippines to combat income losses from prolonged periods of adverse weather which prevent safe fishing. This first of a kind coverage combines three weather parameters (wind speed, wave height, and rainfall) into an index that is triggered after an aggregate number of lost fishing days. The coverage is an affordable, scalable product that provides payments directly to fishers when the policy is triggered. Fishers must formally register and commit to sustainable fishing practices to benefit from this insurance protection.

First Coastal Community Livelihood Incubator for the South West Indian Ocean

Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance ([ORRAA](https://oceanriskalliance.org/)) partner [WWF](https://wwf.panda.org/) is working to unlock private and public sector finance for sustainable coastal development in the South West Indian Ocean (SWIO) region. By accelerating community led enterprises through the design of a regional incubator, this project aims to empower coastal communities to develop viable livelihoods and secure investment.

Climate Smart Shrimp Initiative

Shrimp aquaculture provides local livelihoods and food security benefits. However, its expansion has often come at the cost of coastal ecosystems. Sustainable intensification provides an alternative that produces more within a smaller footprint, but many farmers face barriers to make that transition, including access to capital, technology, expertise, and guaranteed markets. Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance ([ORRAA](https://oceanriskalliance.org/)) partner [Conservation International](https://www.conservation.org/) is piloting Climate Smart Shrimp to incentivise mangrove restoration while also providing the tools for shrimp farmers to produce more sustainable seafood.
