On September 30, Swesif arranged a second webinar on Biodiversity and Finance, this time with focus on ‘How’. The webinar was kicked off by a set of presentations to show examples of current services aiming to address the biodiversity issue in the financial sector.
After these presentations invited experts were asked to comment on these tools, with special focus on challenges in capturing and measuring biodiversity, and the effects of biodiversity loss. The webinar was then rounded off with questions and a discussion.
