Blended Finance for Conservation through the Nature+ Accelerator Fund / Impact Metrics
Date: September 6 at 4:00-5:00pm CEST
Venue: Conservation Finance Pavilion (WCC Exhibition Space) and online
The nature conservation funding gap is estimated to be US$ 600-800 billion per year. Current levels of government and philanthropic funding are insufficient to address the conservation funding deficit to support conservation and restoration goals alone. The Nature+ Accelerator Fund combines the unique set expertise of leading public and private institutions and platforms to address the conservation gap by attracting private finance to conservation. The Accelerator is anchored in IUCN’s global leadership in Nature-based Solutions (NbS), Mirova Natural Capital’s experience in investment management for NbS, and a trusted network of partners within the Coalition of Private Investment in Conservation (CPIC). The portfolio is anchored by funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF). In this session we will focus on how impact measurement is approached by the Accelerator and hear from experts in the field.
