Why do we need Bankable Nature Solutions?
Around the world, land use change, deforestation, and agricultural intensification are driving climate breakdown, ecosystem degradation, and nature loss.
The most vulnerable people and communities in society are particularly badly affected because they rely on natural resources for their livelihoods.
While many financial institutions, development agencies, and companies are looking for ways to catalyse private investment in nature, conservation projects appear relatively unattractive due to limited availabillity of large-scale, liquid investment opportunities, non-transparent risks, relatively low returns, and long time horizons.
Bankable Nature Solutions (BNS) offer a solution - through creating financially viable projects which support the development of more resilient, sustainable landscapes and economies. And their bankability helps accelerate scaling and replication, realising large-scale positive impact for nature and people.
