CIFOR–ICRAF publishes over 750 publications every year on agroforestry, forests and climate change, landscape restoration, rights, forest policy and much more – in multiple languages.

CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests, landscapes, people and the planet.

We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

GLF: Sustainable Finance for Nature-Based Solutions

Nature-based solutions are critical to confronting the multiple crises of the present moment – and cultivating the much-needed resilient landscapes of the future. How can we better support them to be rolled out with the urgency that is required?

This digital forum of practitioners, policy makers, and scientists will:

  • help improve understanding of the opportunities for NbS investments emerging from recent developments in carbon finance and sustainable finance regulations
  • build dialogue to increase adoption of good practices, lessons learned, and of latest innovations
  • inform policy processes.

Join this event on 30 March to learn about recent developments in carbon markets and sustainable land use.
