Finance for Nature: Making Nature Count
The COVID-19 pandemic should have been a predictable crisis, yet we're in danger of sleepwalking into another crisis caused by staggering biodiversity loss. With tropical forests in retreat & the extinction of species thought to be about 1,000X the natural rate, nature’s ability to provide the goods & services we depend on is being undermined, presenting huge risks to prosperity.

As governments rebuild & invest in the wake of the crisis, policymakers must learn to value nature, providing the right conditions & incentives to drive change. An important step is to value nature as we do traditional goods & services to create incentives to avoid biodiversity loss, manage climate change & preserve lives & livelihoods. Harnessing the power of markets can protect our environment & prevent its rapid destruction.

The Paulson Institute (PI) & Finance for Biodiversity (F4B) in partnership with The Nature Conservancy (TNC), the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Rockefeller Foundation Resilience Center, & the Institute of International Finance will host a webinar on Tuesday, April 27 at 9am ET/2pm BST to explore recommendations for how best to address this crisis.

Finance, conservation, business, & policy experts will share perspectives about the looming crisis & explore practical ways that nature can be considered as valuable financial assets.

This webinar is the first in a series of joint events focused on the nexus of nature & finance.
