The closing plenary will end the discussions of the day around issues of mainstreaming sustainable finance and defining “the way forward”. The speakers will address the outstanding issues, gaps and barriers identified and discussed throughout the day, and jointly develop a practical action plan or roadmap to further work on moving sustainable land use finance from niche to mainstream. Speakers will identify the key points of intervention for changing the narrative around sustainable finance in the mainstream; and will inspire and unite a global community of practice on sustainable finance – one that is willing and ready to engage for long-term transformational change in this critical sector.
