Mapping Ocean Wealth’s motivation is precisely to put the value of marine and coastal ecosystem services “on the map,” and into the hands of people who can make a difference. Our goal is for decision-makers worldwide to use the science compiled here—all of it translated into easily accessible language, maps and models—to shape conservation and development policies and investment decisions that take into account the full and true value of our coastal ecosystems to preserve their services and the economies they support for generations to come. Use the icons below to explore some of the ways Mapping Ocean Wealth is being used to drive policy and investment in marine habitat conservation.
