We are facing the twin threats of climate change and biodiversity loss. One cannot be solved without addressing the other.
With investments that harm nature currently outfunded 100:1 compared to those which protect and restore nature, transforming our relationship with nature is a pre-requisite for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement as well as creating a nature-positive future, for people and the planet.
With only 3% of global climate finance spent on nature-based solutions, and only 1% for adaptation the COP26 Presidency is encouraging countries to include nature-based solutions in their climate plans.
To help mainstream and mobilise finance for nature from public and private sources the Global Ethical Finance Initiative (GEFI), in partnership with Scottish Government, Scottish Forum on Natural Capital, Global Canopy, Nature for Climate and UNDP, is delivering a hybrid ‘Finance for Nature’ programme during COP26.
The programme, running across two days, will bring together, in-person and virtually, leading global experts working to enable transformative change towards a nature positive economy along with senior figures from the government, NGO and finance sectors to help build nature positive economies and societies. The programme will feature a series of practical sessions to highlight specific opportunities, understand barriers, create solutions; and foster future collaboration between nature and the global ethical finance community.
