FUND NATURE values, protects, and restores nature globally (Valorem, Protege, Restitue). It does so by creating, structuring, and marketing new forms of financing mechanisms to unlock and allocate financial capital for nature. Fund Nature supports the United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration and Decade on Ocean Science. #fundnature @fund_nature

We fully support the UN Decade on Restoration and as such support its manifesto. "The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development seeks to end poverty, conserve biodiversity, combat climate change and improve livelihoods for everyone, everywhere. These objectives, encapsulated in 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are unlikely to be met unless ecosystem degradation is stopped and ecosystem restoration is undertaken at the immense scale of hundreds of millions of hectares globally. Currently, there is insufficient political support and technical capacity in both the public and private sectors to invest in the many hundreds of thousands of ecosystem restoration initiatives worldwide that are needed to achieve restoration at such a scale."

The Biodiversity Action Guide
This report by Nature Conservancy is a guide to some of the case studies, strategies and tools that can inspire action and ensure success for sovereign nations stepping up with bold commitments. Yet ambitions are not enough; implementation over the next decade is critical.
What we need are more financing mechanisms such as the Project Finance for Permanence example led by Costa Rica. With $57m Costa Rica managed to protect 70% of all its protected areas (PAs), generating US$1.5 billion per year in ecotourism and ecological services.
Biodiversity & Financial Stability
By facilitating economic activity, the financial system can both contribute to the depletion of biodiversity and promote its conservation and sustainable use. The macrofinancial importance of biodiversity means that it could be strategically important for central banks and supervisors to understand these impacts, following the logic of double materiality.
Enabling the financial system to facilitate positive biodiversity impacts could be within the realm of financial policies, including those to which central banks can contribute. Estimates suggest a biodiversity finance gap of around US$598–824 billion annually (Deutz et al., 2020).
Building Integrated Policies for the Planet
Addressing nature and climate together is an imperative to build an equitable, nature-positive and net-zero future. Science tells us that we cannot contain global warming to 1.5°C without addressing nature loss, and we cannot reverse the loss of nature without a stable climate. A recent report from 50 of the world’s leading scientists recognized this interconnection and identified actions to simultaneously fight the climate and nature crises. Businesses are starting to take a more integrated approach, but to accelerate action, coherence and aligned policies on nature and climate are needed.
