The presentation made by Mrs Rose Niu, Chief Conservation Officer at the Paulson Institute, will also be featured on the Congress Post 2020 Partnership Pavilion. On September 6th, the Pavilion gathering a platform of an average 30 organizations, will address the theme of “Transforming Finance” across dedicated set of sessions.
As the only way to slow and stop global biodiversity loss is to ensure that nature is appropriately valued in all economies and across all sectors. The gap between the amount currently spent on biodiversity conservation and what is needed—the biodiversity financing gap— is estimated at $700 billion per year.
This gap can be closed by 2030 but this relies heavily on government policies to reform harmful subsidies, reduce investment risk by private investors, and support new financial innovations to increase capital flows towards biodiversity protection.
The private sector can play a pivotal role, but governments need to pave the way with concessionary capital and tax incentives.
