Global taskforce to shape new generation of ‘nature markets’ launchedmars 31, 2022
The future of global economy and livelihoods, and the prospects for sustained, shared prosperity all depend on a living and thriving nature.
With this in mind, Finance for Biodiversity (F4B) – an initiative supported by MAVA – just launched a global taskforce to ensure that emerging nature markets deliver nature positive and equitable outcomes, and contribute to meeting the climate goals. The taskforce is part of wider efforts to advance the transition to a nature positive, net zero global economy including efforts to align global finance with these goals.
Policy and international cooperation will play a crucial role in shaping purposeful nature markets, and the taskforce will build on existing efforts in recommending key steps to be taken. A whitepaper entitled ‘The Future of Nature Markets’ was released on 31 March 2022 by the taskforce describing the emerging phenomenon of new ‘nature markets’, and sets out the case for an ambitious agenda.
