For the week 23 January 2017
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Join us Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 1pm US EST / 10am US PST / 6pm UTC for a webinar on Debt Conversions to Finance Action on the Blue Economy for Small Island Developing States, presented by Robert Weary of The Nature Conservancy.
Small Island Developing States (SIDS) are highly vulnerable to climate change. However, extremely high public debt ratios make it difficult for these countries to invest in modifying infrastructure and improving coastal and flood protection. The goal of our work is twofold: 1) to facilitate the transaction of donations and investments for climate change adaptation as well as biodiversity conservation in the marine realm and 2) provide highly indebted countries with an innovative financial tool to restructure their debt and allow for debt relief as well as secure capital flows for investments into climate change adaption activities.

-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager, and the rest of the OpenChannels Team
