Cornerstone Partners to Launch a Global Fund to Save the World’s Coral Reefs

The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation and Vulcan, Microsoft co-founder Paul G. Allen’s company and philanthropy, hosted a workshop in September 2018 to explore the creation of a Global Fund for Coral Reefs.

At the conclusion of the workshop, leading conservation finance experts unanimously recommended establishing a Global Fund with a dual focus:

  • Facilitate the use of innovative financing mechanisms, including private, market-based investments in coral reef conservation and restoration; and

  • Unlock financing for coral reef-related climate adaptation through the Green Climate Fund, Adaptation Fund, and the multilateral development banks (MDBs).
