Hosted on the sidelines of COP27 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and online, GLF Climate 2022: Frontiers of Changeunited 7,000 participants from 164 countries and rallied over 27 million people on social media around what humanity can still do to avoid the worsening impacts of the climate crisis.

Unpacking approaches to conservation finance
A live, interactive panel bringing together Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLC) representatives, on-the-ground practitioners who are strong advocates for global forest communities, and experts from the carbon markets for a discussion on what strategic action is needed to direct climate finance towards securing and protecting IPLC lands, and in turn helping countries achieve their climate targets and commitments.
Experts unpack jurisdictional approaches to conservation finance, including the complexities of “nesting,” a methodology to include forest conservation projects into a country’s national climate targets. They also touch on how we can ensure equitable investment partnerships with underrepresented demographics and enable greater participation in the carbon markets to achieve the best for both the people and the planet.
