Join us for an in-depth discussion with the authors of the new report, Financing Nature: Closing the Global Biodiversity Financing Gap, a collaboration between the Paulson Institute, The Nature Conservancy, and the Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability. The report makes the economic case for conserving biodiversity by providing a series of recommendations for policymakers and the private sector, including the mechanisms to reverse biodiversity loss and reduce financial risk.
Specifically, this session will address the most pressing questions impacting life on Earth:
What should corporations, investors, and the public sector do to address the global biodiversity crisis?
How much funding is the global community spending on biodiversity conservation?
How much should the global community be spending if we are going to manage biodiversity sustainably for the long term?
Understanding the biodiversity financing gap, what are the financial and policy mechanisms that, if implemented, could result in the global community closing this gap?
Reversing this worrying trend will require a transformational shift in the way markets, and the discipline of economics more broadly, value nature. And this shift needs to be reflected across governments, corporations, and in our institutions.
