What game-changing approaches have the finance sector devised to not only generate financial returns, but also maximize ecosystem, social and climate benefits in landscapes across the globe?
Join a select group of financiers and landscape leaders on April 26, 2023, from 10:00-11:30 AM EST (3:00-4:00 PM GMT) at our virtual dialogue, Financial Mechanisms for Landscape Investment: Synergies to Increase Returns, Reduce Risks and Enhance Impacts as they seek to answer this question. The dialogue is the second of a three-part interactive series on integrated landscape finance designed to spark discussion amongst diverse funders, together with landscape leaders, on the landscape investment opportunity.

About the dialogue series: Accelerating Finance for Thriving Landscapes
Around the world, climate change and the degradation of land, water and ecosystem health are threatening social well-being and economy. Innovations to reverse these trends and foster a regenerative economy are emerging, including in the investment and finance communities. Yet current efforts remain fragmented, modest in size, and weakly aligned with local needs and priorities.
While new financial flows toward regenerative agriculture, forestry, watershed management, climate change adaptation and biodiversity conservation are growing rapidly, much larger financial flows that accelerate degradation undermine their impact. Financiers complain of a weak pipeline of investable projects, difficulties in achieving transformation impacts at scale, complex measurement of environmental and social impacts, high risks and inadequate support from public institutions.
Integrated landscape finance is one response to this challenge. Integrated landscape finance is an approach and set of tools that encourage synergies between investments to generate impacts on multiple objectives at landscape scale.
The approach emerges from the rapidly growing movement of locally led, multi-stakeholder partnerships that collaboratively manage their landscapes to regenerate nature, adapt to and mitigate climate change and support their communities’ social and economic development. They employ integrated landscape finance to mobilize financial resources of all kinds at speed and scale to reach their goals while minimizing risks for investors.
This event is the second of a three-part dialogue series on integrated landscape finance for financial leaders. During the third dialogue (June 2023), participants will examine the current finance system and discuss gaps and opportunities to strengthen landscape-wide investment.
