Mid-day Plenary

Conference Room 1

The midday plenary will lead the audience into already existing good practices of sustainable finance in the landscape that are suitable to be scaled up and replicated. Key solutions will be highlighted, and remaining gaps and barriers addressed. Speakers will share lessons learned from the innovative funds and leading finance mechanisms that they work with; and explore new ideas and innovative approaches in replicating and scaling up those approaches while moving beyond the identified barriers. Environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards will be elaborated on as key conditions for ensuring that proposed solutions lead to land-use investments that are truly “sustainable” and address sustainable finance taxonomy developments.
