Release Year 2021

ICRI’s Mapping GlobalFunding Landscape for Coral Reef Restoration report recently found that US$258 million has been invested in coral reef restoration efforts across 56 countries in the last decade. Key recommendations to guide future investments in coral reef restoration include increasing 1) the amount and availability of dedicated funding for coral reef restoration, 2) research into sustainable funding for coral reef, and 3) communication on the realities of coral reef restoration regarding goals and timelines.
