Navigating the tricky terrain of NBS and blended finance

Plenary Hall

In this panel discussion, experts from the fields of nature-based solutions (NBS) and blended finance will come together to discuss the challenges and opportunities of financing NBS projects and present insights on blended finance based on their experience in Latin America, West Africa, and Asia. The session will explore how the combination of public and private finance through blended finance instruments can support the implementation of NBS projects and how this approach can deliver multiple benefits for people and nature.

The discussion will be relevant for a wide range of stakeholders, including investors, policymakers, and practitioners working in the fields of climate change, biodiversity conservation, and sustainable development. Participants will gain insights into the latest thinking on blended finance and NBS, and learn from the experiences of those who have successfully navigated the tricky terrain of financing nature-based solutions.
