We rebuild tropical fisheries with coastal communities

Blue Ventures develops locally led approaches to marine conservation that benefit people and nature alike. By listening and responding to basic needs, we design our models to catalyse and sustain marine protection, unlocking the potential of coastal communities to manage their resources. We work in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, and are committed to advancing the rights of small-scale fishers throughout the coastal tropics.

Summary job description

For almost two decades, Blue Ventures has innovated ways for tropical coastal communities to both safeguard mangroves and earn a better living from them. Our Blue Forests model secures mangrove rights, builds strong governance, democratises mangrove supply chains, and brings climate finance to pay local mangrove protectors.

We are currently recruiting a Technical Advisor to support the refinement and scaling up of our Blue Forests model. The position will support the exploration and development of approaches to remove the barriers that both mangrove communities and climate finance investors face in developing viable community-based investment opportunities with measurable returns in blue carbon and other mangrove ecosystem services, including sustainable forestry. In doing so the position will play a pivotal role in helping unlock capital to protect mangroves across the tropics through community-led conservation.
