The Missing Link – Biodiversity and our Financial System
23 juni @ 10:00 - 11:00 CEST
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.
