NoteThe funds of the BCAF are allocated to projects via separate thematic calls for proposals and funding guidelines. Currently, the BCAF provides funds for: a) Readiness Support that will help project developers with activities to get coastal blue carbon restoration projects ready for implementation and future private sector finance –growing the global portfolio of credible and investment-ready blue carbon projects. b) Implementation Support for on-the-ground blue carbon ecosystem restoration or conservation projects that will demonstrate and measure climate, biodiversity and livelihood benefits – enhancing the business case for private sector investment in blue carbon ecosystems.
PurposeThe Blue Carbon Accelerator Fund (BCAF) was established by Australia and IUCN, International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources, as a dedicated funding scheme to support blue carbon restoration and conservation projects in developing countries and help pave the way for private sector finance. The BCAF contributes to addressing barriers to scaling-up and financing blue carbon restoration by supporting the development and implementation of quality blue carbon projects including funding early-stage activities, facilitating capacity building through technical collaboration, assisting with brokerage for future financing, and monitoring and valuing both carbon and noncarbon outcomes.
