Objective of the event 

Share four successful cases that contribute to climate policy advocacy for vulnerable groups and the successful mobilisation of international climate finance from public and private sources to territorial or local contexts in Latin America, for the design and implementation of bankable nature-based solutions, with an emphasis on resilient food production and forests. Based on these, reflect in a panel on best practices, lessons learned, elements of success, potential for replication and scaling up, and remaining bottlenecks.

In this way the event will contribute to international debate and global efforts, still very weak and yet to be consolidated, to connect policies, international finance and business with conservation, low-carbon and climate-resilient solutions based on nature, territories and the local level (transcending the "summits to the territories" approach to climate change, under principles of justice and sustainability). As key elements contributing to the larger purpose of implementing comprehensive and large-scale strategies for the conservation of agro-ecosystems, forests and biodiversity to ensure their role in the economy, food and climate change mitigation and adaptation.

 

Brief description 

The research shows that less than 10% of international climate finance reaches local territories and projects and that, in order to achieve real change, the challenge remains to effectively channel this finance to the territories and the local level, where the solutions materialise and where the most vulnerable still remain behind, and whose livelihoods are highly dependent on climatic conditions. 

The success stories to be shared offer an integrated view of strategies already used and validated for addressing key issues to be resolved, as well as for building or strengthening partnerships and options tailored to the needs of nature-based solutions in the territories, which to grow or replicate need to be linked to both public and private partners, as well as to the flow of international resources.
