Ecosystem restoration is a key strategy for achieving a net zero future, providing opportunities for climate mitigation, adaptation, and sustainable economic development. Scaling up investments in restoration is critical to meet these goals, as well as a stronger collaboration between private financial entities, governments, multilaterals, and local communities. Speakers and participants in this session will discuss the challenges and opportunities for increasing restoration finance, building on the work of the UN Decade Finance Task Force (FTF). The session will provide a space to exchange promising solutions for financing, projects and business models that serve a blueprint for replicable and scalable approaches.
