Panel discussion 1: Carbon finance for Nature-based Solutions – How can recent developments in carbon markets make a difference for sustainable land use?

Forests and sustainable land use are valuable tools in the fight against climate change. While they have historically been underfunded, interest and investment are on the rise, particularly through carbon finance.

But carbon finance remains largely focused on forests, while other land use sectors, such as agroforestry, still struggle to attract financing. In this panel discussion, we will explore the prospects for carbon markets in these sectors, opportunities for local carbon markets in the Global South, and how to transform corporate net-zero commitments into new sources of financing.
