In Latin America, multiple drivers are putting pressure on biodiversity and natural ecosystems. This plenary will build on the issues raised in the ‘Financing Diversity’ plenary to shed light on opportunities and challenges to sustainable climate finance in the Amazon basin and the Latin American region at large. The debate will speak to financial innovations at the intersection of biodiversity and climate action and explore the initiatives and instruments needed to achieve a bio-economy that is truly based on nature’s richness, is gender–inclusive, and is grounded in the rights and expertise of Indigenous Peoples.

The two-part discussion will primarily be held in Portuguese and Spanish, with English translation.
