A new key biodiversity platform for cross sectoral collaboration
For its inaugural launch, World Biodiversity Summit will help define what world leaders and the private sector in biodiversity and climate action need to do in the medium and long term to achieve sustainable development and hinder further biodiversity loss, focusing on partnerships and investment mechanisms as levers of progress. World Biodiversity Summit is a platform for responding to accelerating biodiversity loss, by using the Paris Agreement as a framework to learn from, promoting relevant solutions, innovations, and leadership networks, strengthening nature restoration and conservation. Nature-based solutions will be highlighted, from specificecosystems to global possibilities.

Catalysing Nature Markets
- Overcoming Barriers & Accelerating Investment Opportunities
The value of the services provided by biodiversity cannot be understated, as it underpins food security, livelihoods and the global economy. Our planet depends on biodiversity for life and ultimately, all 17 SDGs depend on healthy ecosystems.
This panel will focus on finance and the private sector’s strategy to raise ambitions for the protection and conservation of the natural environment. What role does finance play in the post-pandemic scenario and how do we ensure that nature markets are integrated into climate finance?
This discussion will analyse opportunities and challenges for natural capital investments and how mobilising finance for nature can help achieve the goals of both the Paris Agreement and the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
