Mainstreaming finance for nature – from niche to norm
The Global Landscapes Forum (GLF) held its sixth Investment Case Symposium, GLF-Luxembourg Finance for Nature: What comes next?, on 7 March 2023 in Luxembourg and online.
It brought together over 4,500 finance stakeholders from across the globe; project developers, entrepreneurs, and fund managers; development finance institutions, impact investors, donors, and foundations; investors, funds, banks, and other financiers; and youth, local communities, and changemakers.
The symposium showcased existing and innovative financial mechanisms, investable community-led business models, and successful climate investments. It connected local project developers – especially in the Global South – with investors; highlighted how to catalyze private sector investment in community-led and nature-based projects; and identified policy recommendations for moving green finance from the margins to the mainstream.
The Outcome Statement summarizes policy recommendations on the symposium’s four key themes below and showcases projects and initiatives of each category.
- Blended finance
- Impact monitoring and standards
- Sustainable value chains
- Innovation for community finance
