Internship with the Biodiversity Finance Initiative - BIOFIN/UNDPBIOFIN - United Nations Development ProgrammeIstanbul11/14/2017

There are currently 30 countries globally participating in BIOFIN. The project, which began in 2012 and continues through 2018, is coordinated by the UNDP through a global team supporting country implementation and the continuous improvement of the BIOFIN methodology. 

The global team works with interdisciplinary national teams, customising the methodology to the national context in each country. At the national level, BIOFIN works under the leadership of ministries of finance (treasury), economy, planning and environment to bring together a core group of national stakeholders, including the private sector, to rethink the most suitable fi-nance modalities for biodiversity. Activities are implemented through in-depth consultation with a strong focus on capacity development. 



Partnerships are another important feature of the BIOFIN methodology in each country, in particular with related initiatives such as WAVES, TEEB, PEI, UN-REDD, GIZ ValuES and relevant conservation fi¬nance projects including those under the UNDP-GEF portfolio. At the regional and global level, BIOFIN enables participating countries to exchange experiences through a variety of South-South cooperation mechanisms such as regional and global workshops, the BIOFIN website (www.biodiversityfinance.net), dedicated webinars and other platforms.
