About the 6th Investment Case Symposium
Hosted in Luxembourg and online, GLF–Luxembourg Finance for Nature 2023: What comes next? united 4,500 participants from 160 countries, 106 speakers, and 100 global and local partner organizations, and reached 10 million people on social media, with more than 230 thousand engagements, around how finance can solve – rather than exacerbate – the climate and biodiversity crises.
Across 37 plenaries, expert sessions, special announcements, networking sessions, dialogues, onsite presentations, and inspirational talks, the event sparked vibrant conversations on sustainable finance in 2023, including the latest innovations, success stories, investable projects, and much more.
In this talk, Laura and Tashka Yawanawá, Indigenous Leaders of Yawanawá people in Acre, Brazil, share their experience in creating sustainable business models that preserve land, protect forests, and support the livelihood of the local communities, and call for investors to rethink the investment flow in Indigenous Peoples’ nature-based projects.
“We see so many announcements by the governments and companies, directing the money to preserve nature, but this money never reaches the final destination – the Indigenous Peoples who are at the front of the crisis,” says Tashka.
