The Missing Link – Biodiversity and our Financial System

23 juni @ 10:00 - 11:00 CEST

Ecosystems and biodiversity across the globe are in a state of rapid decline. There is an urgent need for research to identify how markets and policy have led to pernicious links between global economic activity and biodiversity loss and, most critically, the actions that can be taken to decouple them. This is the message from Mistra’s expert panel in their background paper, preparing for a call on biodiversity and the financial system.

With biodiversity now emerging as a key challenge on the sustainable finance agenda, with a range of up-coming initiatives and assessment methods, Mistra has identified this as a topic for a research funding call to open in early fall 2021.  

As part of Mistra’s research initiation process in this area an international expert group was invited to write a background paper – Aligning Markets with Biodiversity. The report focuses on the current misalignment between biodiversity and the financial system and highlights that our dependence on nature inextricably links biodiversity to global production and consumption. As a result, markets will always have a role to play in the solution to the biodiversity crisis. This requires an understanding of the missing link – the interplay between biodiversity and the financial system, and how this interaction can be positively transformed.  

Welcome to this Mistra Dialogue-webinar where the report will be launched and two of its authors will present the main results.   

The session will be in English on Zoom, and as a participant you will have the opportunity to address questions to the speakers during the webinar. The background paper will be available on mistra.org when the webinar starts.
