How can the rise of carbon finance help boost sustainable land use?

06 Apr 2022

Forests and sustainable land use are valuable tools in the fight against climate change. While they have historically been underfunded, interest and investment are on the rise, particularly through carbon finance.

But carbon finance remains largely focused on forests, while other land use sectors, such as agroforestry, still struggle to attract financing. In this panel discussion, we explore prospects for carbon markets in these sectors, opportunities for local carbon markets in the Global South, and how to transform corporate net-zero commitments into new sources of financing.
