Trillions of dollars are available in funds to stop deforestation, reverse degradation, and integrate agriculture in the landscape. But these are underspent due to a mismatch between the world of finance and the one of biodiversity. At the same time, innovative solutions are being developed in a diverse range of projects around the world today. What do they teach us about bridging the gap and making the match?
Speakers from the financial world will discuss innovations in finance and how they fit in with biodiversity and speakers from the biodiversity world discuss bankable biodiversity models, ecoagriculture and natural capital accounting. Cases from the Netherlands and Colombia illustrate these innovations. Interactive discussions with the audience will enrich the programme.
“The sessions have helped me to understand how much private funding potentially is available for biodiversity programming and how landscape approaches and Natural Capital Accounting can be used to mobilize it.”
