More than the money: Financial solutions for natural landscapes

New York

This talk will show how financing sustainable landscapes requires a comprehension of the systems driving ecosystem loss and degradation, public regulatory and fiscal policy, and the arsenal of potential finance solutions. Building on David’s experience from the last 4 years at the Biodiversity Finance Initiative (UNDP), he will provide examples of how “finance solutions” can integrate these factors to achieve large gains by leveraging targeted interventions. David will use examples from the developing countries with whom BIOFIN has been working including examples of local engagement and focusing on an integrated systems approach that by its nature requires inclusion of diverse voices.

Organizations are welcome and encourage to host and facilitate side meeting before and during the GLF event, and then bring their results and recommendations to the Forum. A GLF secretariat will be on hand to identify and reserve appropriate Bonn venues. Webinars, engaging social media campaigns, competitions and pre-event discussions will generate momentum and interest in key issue areas to ensure that the GLF accelerates long-term action for sustainable landscapes.

The GLF will have a small secretariat in Bonn, Germany to coordinate all of the above, operated by CIFOR.
