Blue Natural Capital Financing Facility: Mobilizing finance for nature-based solutions in coastal zones

Inspiration Hub

The Blue Natural Capital Financing Facility (BNCFF), funded by the Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and managed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), supports the development of sound, investable blue natural capital (BNC) projects with clear ecosystem service benefits, based on multiple income streams and appropriate risk-return profiles. This session will provide an overview of BNCFF operations over the last five years, building a pipeline of marine and coastal restoration and conservation projects, discuss lessons learned, and highlight various knowledge products (such as blue prints, blue carbon and coastal resilience business models, etc) developed by IUCN- and BNCFF-supported projects.
