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.
