This paper makes the case for a transformative approach to private investment in the blue economy, catalyzed by international development organizations. It proposes using government approved regional action programs as guides to investment, as strategic frameworks to prioritize action, and as tools to reduce private sector investment risks. Establishing regional pre-investment facilities supported by the international development and donor communities could serve as a new institutional arrangement to help cultivate pipelines of sustainable and bankable projects addressing the sustainability of ocean health and coastal economies.
