Restoring marine ecosystems through better management and financing

Recommendations to foster a restorative blue economy (May 2024)

A healthy marine ecosystem can support a thriving, sustainable blue economy – and vice versa.

But coastal marine ecosystems in Aotearoa New Zealand are declining in health. This decline is characterised by biodiversity loss and the loss of valuable ecosystem functions and services that we rely on. Investment is needed to develop legal, policy, and finance mechanisms to support the enduring restoration of marine ecosystems.

To move forward, we need to improve how we manage marine ecosystems and how we fund restoration activities.
