Africa Blue Wave: A $1 Million Initiative Powering Ocean Sustainability

BFA Global, FSD Africa, and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) have launched the Africa Blue Wave, a $1 million initiative to support tech startups which will contribute to more sustainable livelihoods and use of ocean and water resources. This exciting initiative made possible through funding from FSD Africa and the Canadian Government, builds on TECA’s (Triggering Exponential Climate Action) expertise in fostering blue innovation over the last year through a successful pilot wave supported by FSD Africa.

The Africa Blue Wave will support high-potential individuals who demonstrate a passion for addressing climate issues in Africa’s blue economy. It will be implemented by TECA, an initiative of BFA Global, with support from OceanHub Africa.
