Nature provides important ecosystem services that contribute to resilience against climate change and that help combat further climate change. However, as a result of deforestation and unsustainable farming the ecological base, which ensures adequate water supplies, food and climate resilience, has been eroded in many landscapes. What’s more, the degradation of ecosystems leads to a further escalation of climate change.
Sustainable landscape development to achieve climate resilience
If we are to turn the tide, various stakeholders must bundle their strengths in these landscapes. Public authorities, businesses, social organisations and communities can collectively ensure the sustainable landscape development that is needed to achieve climate resilience.
Funding for climate adaptation and mitigation
The Mobilizing More 4 Climate (MoMo4C) project allows us to contribute to this objective by supporting social organisations and entrepreneurs in six landscapes in Ghana, Indonesia, Cameroon, Mozambique and Uganda in developing investable projects for nature restoration that contribute to climate mitigation and climate adaptation. We subsequently reach out to private and public investors. We help the projects attract the necessary investments to implement the initiatives with the aim to scale up these solutions for climate resilience.
