Sustainable land bonds may offer a fresh path forward
- Published on
Tropical forest countries could soon use a new financial mechanism to access the capital they need to transition to sustainable, low-carbon land-management systems, according to a recent report by The Nature Conservancy in partnership with the Climate Bonds Initiative.
By tapping into mainstream bond markets and matching those funds with results-based payment agreements for achieving emission targets, the report says, sustainable land bonds (SLBs) can help deliver viable economies that meet the objectives laid out in the U.N. Paris Agreement and mitigate the impacts of climate change.
Innovative green investment tools such as SLBs will be discussed at the Global Landscapes Forum’s 2018 Investment Case Symposium on May 30 in Washington, D.C.
