About the Finance for Nature Digital Forum: Investing in Equitable Futures in Latin America and the Caribbean
No one knows the land better than rural communities – yet the local people receive just a tiny fraction of climate finance. It’s time to work together to steward our planet for generations to come.
On 13 July 2023, the Luxembourg–GLF Finance for Nature platform explored ways to support the stewardship of local communities and enterprises in Latin America and the Caribbean through sustainable finance.
This event brought together community representatives, business leaders, financiers, policymakers and scientists to discuss how we can raise and equitably distribute funds for sustainable land use at the grassroots level.
