Private sector leadership, innovation and ambition in climate and nature

About the event

The GEF continues to prioritize support for nature-based solutions which have the potential to generate both climate mitigation and adaptation benefits, while boosting biodiversity conservation and contributing to reverse land degradation trends. The objective of this session is to raise interest in private sector partnerships with the GEF and partners and stimulate follow-up meetings and bilaterals. Speakers will demonstrate how shared GEF and private sector priorities of net zero emissions, climate adaptation, and nature positive approaches can be applied in the GEF portfolio.
