Lead institution:

Plymouth Marine Laboratory United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (UK)

Sea the Value brings together a unique interdisciplinary team and an extensive international network of collaborators to address fundamental questions regarding the economics of biodiversity, specifically of blue carbon and marine water quality.

The team includes internationally recognised expertise in environmental and ecological economics, marine ecology, human geography, governance, and finance, putting us in an unrivalled position to make a transformative change. This Decade Action aims to determine novel and policy relevant pluralistic values for carbon, and other marine benefits, and apply these values to co-develop green investment options for blue ecosystem restoration and conservation, leading to a transformative shift in our understanding and the development of novel blue carbon finance mechanisms.
