Panel Session 5B

Boosting Climate Resilience with Natural Capital and Investing in Nature Based Solutions  

Co-hosted by World Biodiversity Network



Fighting climate change requires protecting biodiversity and a fourfold increase in investments in Nature-based Solutions (NbS) to achieve 2050 net-zero targets. NbS can offer high returns on investment, yet the key drivers such as technology and innovation remain underdeveloped. How can new initiatives and finance instruments support the assessment of nature-related risks and opportunities for businesses? What are some concrete recommendations to mainstream global financial flows to shift to nature-positive outcomes?
