In the Mobilising more for climate podcast, we bring powerful voices and stories from the frontline of nature conservation into the world of finance. All six episodes of the podcast are now available online.
Healthy societies, resilient economies and thriving businesses rely on nature. Through their activities financial institutions have an impact on nature. The Mobilising more for climate podcast discusses examples of conservation finance and nature-based solutions in low-income and lower-middle-income countries.
Finance for biodiversity
In each episode, we examine the importance of investing in local projects with a return on nature, people and climate. Through stories from the forefront of nature & climate finance, we discuss how new and existing investments can help close the biodiversity funding gap.
In the first episode of the podcast series, we set the scene and lay the groundwork for the rest of the series.
Impact on local communities
How can we ensure that organisations which organise climate finance projects have more attention for their impact on local communities? Listen to episode 2 and 3 of the podcast:
In episode 4, we discuss the importance of investing inclusively – specifically focusing on women, youth, IPLCs and vulnerable groups.
Scaling up finance for nature and climate
In the final two episodes of the podcast, listeners learn how we can scale up finance for conservation and climate by increasing private investments. Our guests share successful examples of financing local projects.
Mobilising More for Climate
The podcast series is part of the Green Finance Academy of the Mobilising More for Climate programme; a five-year programme implemented by IUCN NL, WWF NL and Tropenbos International, funded by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The aim is to bring together entrepreneurs, firms, policymakers, investors and civil society organisations so new collaborations and projects that focus on nature conservation are initiated.
