Natural climate solutions, defined as actions to protect, sustainably manage, and restore nature to tackle socio-environmental challenges, can provide more than a third of the climate mitigation needed to meet carbon emission goals set in the Paris Agreement, but they currently receive just a small fraction of climate finance. This urgently needs to change if we are to unlock their full potential to help us combat climate change.
We need new ideas, new commitments and new innovations. By bringing together industry champions from finance, insurance, consumer goods companies and standard-setting regulators, we hope to spur a new understanding, support and momentum that will drive practical commitments on investing in nature.
The Finance for Nature Virtual Global Series, delivered by UNDP, UNEP, the Scottish Government-backed Global Ethical Finance Initiative, the New York Declaration on Forests Global Platform and Climate Advisers will accelerate momentum on nature-based finance in advance of the UN Climate and Biodiversity COPs in 2021.
