2024 Ocean Decade Conference Off-site Satellite Event: Financing nature-based solutions for a sustainable blue economy

Tuesday, 9 April 2024 - 12:00 to 14:00 (Europe/Brussels) (Europe/Brussels)
Barcelona Biomedical Research Park PRBB, C/ del Dr. Aiguader, 88, Ciutat Vella, 08003 Barcelona, Spain

Financing is crucial for scaling up (NbS) nature-based solutions. One of the major challenges for financing NbS is that the benefits derived from projects are difficult to cash in. Organised by members from NetworkNature+ Taskforce 3 on financing and business models for NbS in a Nature-Positive Economy, the event will: 

(1) discuss ongoing projects, such as Invest4Nature, C-FAARER, GoNaturePositive, and share emerging concepts and initial findings from the financing of coastal and marine related NbS; 

(2) hold a panel dialogue with private sectors, public sectors, institutional investors, business clusters and academics to discuss the challenges and breakthroughs associated with private and blended blue financing for NbS.
