Natural capital is key to halting the loss of biodiversity, and adapting to climate change. It will require significantly increased investment in the years to come. Whilst a number of innovative financing solutions have been developed, a disconnect remains: many project developers struggle to access mainstream finance to scale their business.
At the same time, mainstream investors struggle to find attractive sustainable land use models. During the session, innovative fund managers will offer insights into what it takes for businesses to attract investment that fits their needs. Hosted by the European Investment Bank (EIB) at the GLF Luxembourg 2019 Conference, the session will facilitate a discussion on possible ways to overcome the most important barriers for landscape and conservation finance.
This White Paper was produced by European Investment Bank (EIB) for the session at the GLF Investment Case 2019 in Luxembourg.
