A global partnership of scientists, policy practitioners and financial experts launched Mapping Ocean Wealth in January 2014. Led by The Nature Conservancy, this effort was conceptualized and incubated in partnership with The World Bank and is mapping the world’s vast ocean wealth in all its many forms and changing conservation and development policies and practices in the process through an understanding of how and where ocean wealth is generated and valued.
The Mapping Ocean Wealth team includes science and policy experts from around the world.
