Webinar: Report launch “Nature’s Return” on finance & biodiversity

Finance Watch has presented the key findings from our report on biodiversity and finance, “Nature’s Return”,  in an online presentation on 4th May 2020.

Webinar’s invitation text:

As the EU weighs up a massive economic recovery plan post-COVID-19, now is the time to embed environmental goals at the heart of economic and financial decision-making. We must tackle the economic and environmental crises together to come out stronger and more resilient. We cannot afford to miss this moment.

In this short webinar, you can hear:

  • Why it has been so difficult to fund biodiversity and other nature projects
  • Our recommendations to focus private finance on the longer term
  • Our recommendations to unlock public finance for nature through the Green Deal

During this 45-minutes webinar, Thierry Philipponnat, Head of Research and Advocacy at Finance Watch, will present our new report “Nature’s Return”, which will be released on the same day.

We are very pleased to have Tracey Cumming, UNDP BIOFIN Technical Advisor and member of the Expert Panel on Resource Mobilisation, Post-2020 global biodiversity framework, UN Convention on Biological Diversity, with us to discuss our EU recommendations and add an international perspective. Download her presentation here.

In a short Q&A session, moderated by Benoît Lallemand, Secretary General at Finance Watch, you will have the chance to ask your questions to both speakers.
