Healthy and resilient societies depend on giving nature the space to thrive. And the recent pandemic has made protecting and restoring nature all the more urgent.

This is the headline message of Europe’s new biodiversity strategy, a key part of Europe’s ‘Green Deal’, which stresses the financial benefits of healthy ecosystems and points out that “almost half of global GDP depends on nature and the services it provides”.

The European Green Deal is just one path for sustainable recovery in one region. The extent to which ambition for conservation is translated into policies and action across the world will depend on multiple interest groups – such as CPIC.

Private investors need long-term certainty in the form of consistent policy signals to help guide investment towards the deployment of natural climate solutions. Bridging the conservation finance gap will also require proven investment models and a pipeline of investable projects for investors to get behind.

This is why CPIC is working towards the successful delivery of investable conservation projects – and making sure the rest of the world knows about it too. In case you want to know more about what’s planned, please reach out to the CPIC Secretariat.

As always, we thank each one of you for being a part of our journey to increase private investment in conservation, and to enable a thriving wildlife and healthier planet for communities & commerce alike.
