Webinar: Financing Nature: Key Findings and Discussion

Catch up on our in-depth discussion with the authors of the new report, Financing Nature: Closing the Global Biodiversity Financing Gap, a collaboration between the Paulson Institute, The Nature Conservancy, and the Cornell Atkinson Center for Sustainability. The report makes the economic case for conserving biodiversity by providing a series of recommendations for policymakers and the private sector, including the mechanisms to reverse biodiversity loss and reduce financial risk.

Specifically, this session addresses the most pressing questions impacting life on Earth:

    • What should corporations, investors, and the public sector do to address the global biodiversity crisis?
    • How much funding is the global community spending on biodiversity conservation
    • How much should the global community be spending if we are going to manage biodiversity sustainably for the long term?
    • Understanding the biodiversity financing gap, what are the financial and policy mechanisms that, if implemented, could result in the global community closing this gap?
  • Speakers:

    • John Tobin, Professor of Practice of Corporate Sustainability at Cornell University
    • Suresh Sethi, Assistant Professor, Department of Natural Resources, Cornell University
    • Li Zhu, Director, Conservation, Paulson Institute
    • Andrew Deutz, Director of Global Policy, The Nature Conservancy


Followed by a panel discussion, moderated by John Tobin, and a Q&A session.
