A much greater share of the world’s money is invested in ways that contribute to climate change than the amount spent to prevent it, and this must change. Fortunately, financial innovations and mechanisms are being developed to help protect ecosystems and improve livelihoods, and the Luxembourg-GLF Finance for Nature Platform is working to expand this field and support the growth of new nature-centered financial developments. Join the Global Landscapes Forum on the last day (7 November) of its upcoming conference alongside COP26, GLF Climate to delve deeper into the world of sustainable finance and green investment.

Brief yourself here with a selection of Landscape News’ articles and videos about finance, and to join the event, digitally or in-person, get your ticket here, and learn more about the other days on forests and food systems.
