Nature and climate are two sides of the same coin. COP 27 and its biodiversity equivalent, COP 15, will play an important role in advancing policy responses to the climate and natural crises and providing the private sector with global goals and courses of action. The business and financial race towards net zero emissions will naturally succeed if it races at the same speed towards a positive future. And a “Paris-like framework” is crucial for public and private sector support. We cannot stop the climate crisis without addressing the degradation and loss of nature and biodiversity.
In this webinar, Elizabeth Maluma Mirema, CBD Executive Director Learn what the financial sector can expect from this ‘moment for nature in Paris’ at COP 15 in December 2022 in Montreal, Canada under the President of the People’s Republic of China. He also heads the Biodiversity Fund’s Advocacy for Public Policy Working Group, and has spoken with two financial institutions to help them halt and reverse natural loss, which will affect the ambitious outcome of COP 15. You will also learn about the actions taken by negotiation. We will also hear from the Central Bank of Chile as an agent of basic precautions for the financial sector. We will also discuss the path the Bank of Chile is taking to incorporate nature into its fiduciary duty. The panel will explore the demands and opportunities from the financial sector at COP 15 and provide the information you need to take action before, during and after this landmark event.
