The coastal ecosystem across East Asia faces increasing threats that diminish the ecological health, environmental resilience and socioeconomic potential of such areas at the interface of land and sea. Available funds for ecosystem services and biodiversity remain small in comparison to the actual human cost of consuming, restoring, maintaining and managing such global commons.

With support from Partnerships in Environmental Management for the Seas of East Asia (PEMSEA), IIX provides a high-level, macro landscape mapping of financial investments linked to Integrated Coastal Management and sustainable coastal development activities. We give insight to relevant partners and governments with a greater understanding of financial flows into ICM-related projects and initiatives, and the requirements and expectations of various investors, donor agencies and foundations across the grant and investment spectrum.
