The paper Rethinking our Global Coastal Investment Portfolio, written by Erin McCreless and Michael Beck identifies major sources of funding for coastal green and grey infrastructure globally. The paper concludes that the funds for green infrastructure are a small fraction of global investments along coastlines. The paper identifies major funders in different coastline spending categories and discusses ways to move towards a more balanced investment portfolio that could benefit biodiversity, prevent billions of dollars of storm damage, and protect lives and livelihoods of coastal residents.
