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.

Panel discussion 2: Sustainable finance taxonomy for Nature-based Solutions – What should we expect from new and upcoming finance regulations for sustainable land use?

Private companies are making record investments in sustainable projects. But how do we know if an investment is truly sustainable? Policymakers in the EU, China, Southeast Asia and elsewhere are developing taxonomies to distinguish between sustainable and unsustainable activities.

In this session, we discuss the next steps for the EU’s green taxonomy, the opportunities and challenges of creating taxonomy and disclosure regulations, and the potential of other mechanisms to ensure sustainable supply chains and more investments in nature-based solutions.

Closing remarks

Investors are starting to pour money into climate solutions, but where are the funds to tackle biodiversity loss, land degradation and other environmental challenges?

We’ve partnered with the Government of Luxembourg to promote investments in sustainable land use through the Luxembourg–GLF Finance for Nature Platform.
