Pacific Ocean Finance Fellows Nius

The Pacific Islands Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA) and the Office of the Pacific Ocean Commissioner (OPOC), in partnership with Conservation Strategy Fund, the Conservation Finance Alliance (CFA) and the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), launched the Pacific Ocean Finance Fellowship Program in early 2019.

Twelve outstanding Fellows  from throughout the North and South Pacific were chosen at the end of May 2021 through a competitive selection process. The Fellows began their intensive training with a one-week workshop in Honiara, Solomon Islands in June. The workshop covered a range of topics related to finance solutions, including ocean governance and policy, sustainable ocean economic development, marine spatial planning, natural resource and fisheries economics, valuation of ecosystem services, natural capital accounting, environmental policy and incentives, ocean health indicators, public sector financing and fiscal management, private sector financing, and an overview of finance instruments. Fellows had the opportunity to learn about current ocean finance projects in the Pacific, and to share and discuss their project ideas and receive feedback from instructors and the group.

Now back in their home countries, Fellows have been working to turn their ideas into feasible project proposals. Learn more about their projects through The Pacific Ocean Finance Fellows Nius.
