The 3rd GLF Investment Case Symposium
Building the Investment Case for Sustainable Landscapes and Restoration
The 2018 GLF Investment Case will gather 200 experts to advance the application of sustainable finance for land management. We will demonstrate how investment in restoring and sustaining natural landscapes can successfully generate financial returns.
At the event, we will highlight examples of deal structures that support sustainable landscape management, and projects that reflect the kind of strong financial planning and risk assessment necessary to attract investors.
Featuring keynote panels and lively break-out discussions, the 2018 symposium will facilitate dialogue between a diverse range of actors from the worlds of business, politics, academia, NGOs, civil society, local land users and the media.
An estimated 200 participants, along with a global online audience, will meet for two intense and exciting days of discussion, learning and innovation at the GLF Investment Case.
