Unlocking finance for sustainable land use

UNDP, the Climate Policy Initiative and the EU REDD Facility are joining forces to share innovative solutions and tools for scaling up investments in sustainable land use. In this event, we will discuss challenges countries face in mobilising domestic and international funding to implement their REDD+ investment strategies, and in ensuring that domestic land-use investments are coherent.

During the discussion, a panel discussion with representatives from different countries will discuss these and related questions:

  • What are the main financing gaps, opportunities and priorities?
  • How to align unsustainable investments to forest and climate objectives?
  • How much money has been spent on reducing deforestation over time?

During the event, The EU REDD Facility and the Climate Policy Initiative will also present their freely-available toolbox for land-use finance mapping. The toolbox enables countries/jurisdictions and their technical partners to better understand the nature and volume of investments affecting forests at national and sub-national levels. It aims to build the capacity of national stakeholders to analyse land-use finance and develop investment strategies, funding proposals and public-private partnerships.
