Session 1B

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. This session explored the answer for the following questions: how can emerging initiatives, such as the TNFD, support the assessment of emerging nature-related risks and opportunities for businesses? What are some concrete recommendations to mainstream global financial flows shift to nature-positive outcomes?
