In the second and third episode of our Mobilising more for climate podcast, we discuss how we can ensure that climate finance reaches local communities that contribute to climate adaptation and mitigation. We talk to experts who bridge the gap between local entrepreneurs and public and private investors.
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 will discuss how new and existing investments can help close the biodiversity funding gap.

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.
