About this Event

TAKING CONSERVATION FINANCE TO SCALE

Environmental projects are woefully underfunded. Improving their risk-return profiles and structuring larger investment products could unlock private capital to narrow the gap. Environmental-conservation projects face a dramatic shortage of funds. Estimates indicate that US$300 billion to US$400 billion is needed each year to preserve and restore ecosystems but that conservation projects receive just US$52 billion, mostly from public and philanthropic sources.

HOW ARISE SEA CAN ATTRACT MORE CONSERVATION IMPACT INVESTING?

Arise SEA is taking the lead on several initiatives that will help attract private capital for conservation projects, first from impact-oriented investors and then, increasingly, from mainstream investors as well. Arise SEA is enacting a realistic and well-structured assessment of risks and returns and how these translate to financial measures. We often see conservation projects that have commercially unattractive risk-return profiles because their risks are indefinite relative to their expected cash flows. Sometimes such projects are pitched as market-rate investments, which diminishes their attractiveness. Arise SEA offers multiple options for impact investing, including options that are more likely to interest investors who seek market-level returns in addition to conservation impact.
