In March 2022, the UNEP released Deep Dive: Finance, Ocean Pollution and Coastal Resilience, a follow-up guide to Turning the Tide released in early 2021, a practical toolkit for transitioning financial institution activities to sustainable blue economy financing.

This report is a science-based, actionable toolkit for banks, insurers and investors to align decision-making with a sustainable blue economy, which helps financial institutions to break the pollution cycle, including plastics and other solid waste, and manage the impacts of coastal infrastructure projects such as seawalls, while exploring the potential of nature-based solutions including mangroves and reefs.

The IWM NAMA project completed the Chinese translation of the report in September 2022.
