Aprovechar el poder de la naturaleza: financiar una bioeconomía en América Latina

06 Nov 2020

Home to approximately 40 percent of the world’s species and more than a quarter of the world’s forests, Latin America is a biodiversity powerhouse. But multiple drivers, the majority human, are exerting profound and unmitigated pressure on the region’s ecosystems and wildlife. In this session, experts build on the ‘Financing Diversity’ plenary, shedding light on the potential that sustainable finance could have in restoring both ecosystems and supply chain equity in the Amazon basin, while exploring the initiatives, instruments and innovations needed to bring an inclusive and rights-based bioeconomy to scale.
