The world is experiencing dangerous nature loss at rates unprecedented in human history. To reverse the loss of nature, governments must pursue ambitious policies and the financial sector must scale up nature-positive financial projects and investments. World leaders are convening at the biggest biodiversity conference in a decade – COP15 – to agree on actions, including an ambitious post-2020 global biodiversity framework.
This virtual roundtable discusses key outcomes of COP15 in December, what needs to be done to generate, deliver and realign finance for biodiversity, the role of the private sector and financial institutions in addressing the biodiversity challenge and market readiness for nature-related disclosures
