Event description
We are delighted to invite you to a side-event of the "Paris for Tomorrow" week

About this Event

Given the scale of today's environmental challenges, the mobilisation of private finance for sustainable land use and so-called ‘Nature Based Solutions’ will be essential to preserve biodiversity and climate. Biodiversity is critical to the sustainability of life on Earth, helping to stabilise the climate, and secure the well-being of human societies. Healthy ecosystems provide shelter, food and medicine, while forests and oceans act as huge carbon sinks. Unfortunately, natural habitats and unique landscapes are being destroyed at an alarming rate, and the cost of inaction is rising. Nature suffers from over-exploitation and underinvestment.

As a result, there is an urgent need to mobilise finance at scale to invest in Nature-Based Solutions to the ongoing climate and biodiversity crises.

On the international stage, global responses such as the "New Deal for Nature", including all stakeholders, need to be supported. The private sector has a key role to play, alongside scientists, civil society and governments. The meetings of IPBES and IUCN in France are intended to accelerate the momentum from the private sector, towards the COP15 of the Convention on Biological Diversity in China in 2020.

As part of the Paris for Tomorrow week, this event will showcase concrete actions and lessons learned from experience of natural capital investing, through agroforestry, agroecology and regenerative agriculture practices. The objective of the event is to raise awareness, promote innovation and best practices, and build common ground amongst actors to support the development of the natural capital asset class.

Join us to learn more about the role of sustainable land use and private finance in tackling today's environmental challenges!
