Speaker: Karen Sack
President & CEO, Ocean Unite
Co-Chair, Ocean Risk and Resilience Action Alliance

The Ocean which feeds us and regulates our climate is changing at the fastest rate in human history. Eight hundred million people are at risk of coastal flooding within a generation. And ocean-related risks are multiplying. We need to understand these risks and we need to build resilience to them. We can do this by valuing and then investing in coastal ecosystems - reefs, wetlands, mangroves. Then we need to work together to drive systemic change. The Ocean Risk Resilience and Action Alliance (ORRAA) is an example of a multi-sector alliance that pioneers finance and insurance products that incentivize investment in nature-based solutions, with a focus on protecting the communities that need it the most.
