Catalysing Nature Markets

- Aligning Investors, Projects, and Biodiversity Goals

With the Global Biodiversity Framework paving the way for a new era of action for nature, progress in finance

for biodiversity is already taking shape. However, to achieve our collective climate, biodiversity, and land

degradation goals, investment in nature-based solutions needs to significantly increase.

Through this session, speakers outlined clear actions that are spearheading innovative financing and

economic incentives to stimulate the transformation of finance into nature. Successful case studies

showcased tangible examples of financial incentives for sustainable land management, market-based

approaches promoting biodiversity-friendly products, and risk-leveraging financial instruments.
