Nature4Climate Nature Finance Survey Reveals Key NbS Investments for 2024
New data from a poll of financial professionals with an interest in nature-positive finance has revealed key motivations, themes, trends and challenges shaping nature markets. Over 120 individuals from financial organizations, corporations and enabling companies responded to Nature4Climate’s ‘Trends in Nature Positive Investments’ survey.
Finance for nature creeped up, but still falls well short of what’s needed
We need nature-based solutions (NbS) to provide up to a third of the mitigation required by 2030 in order to keep the goals of the Paris Agreement in reach. However, in 2022 they received roughly $200 billion a year, – up from $154 billion in 2021. While this represents an increase of 11%, it is still only a third (37%) of what’s needed by 2030 to achieve global climate and biodiversity goals.
World Wetlands Day: local communities thrive by protecting mangroves and peatlands in Indonesia
With temperatures rising rapidly, there’s a critical need for solutions that not only sequester carbon but also provide shelter, aid communities in adapting to extreme events, and safeguard ecosystem balance and livelihoods. Guess what does all that? Wetlands! This World Wetlands Day (2), discover how Indonesian community efforts resonate globally: Indonesia holds the third-highest global potential for carbon sequestration through natural climate solutions, according to naturebase data.
New paper: "The Principles of Natural Climate Solutions"
Natural Climate Solutions (NCS) contribute to short- and long-term climate change mitigation, offering essential benefits for biodiversity and communities. A new paper, “The Principles of Natural Climate Solutions,” led by The Nature Conservancy and authored by experts from seven organizations, outlines guidelines for incentivizing and implementing global efforts to protect, better manage, and restore nature. Published in the journal Nature Communications, it provides a framework for effective action.

The Nature Calendar 2024
‘Nature Positive’ is a measurable global goal. It refers to halting and reversing biodiversity loss, through gains in the health, abundance, diversity and resilience of species, ecosystems and processes. We are calling for all to take action to support the global goal of a nature positive world by 2030, measured against a 2020 baseline
NbS Commitment Tracker update
A recent update of Nature4Climate’s NbS Commitment Tracker has found that more than half (52.5%) of all commitments tracked have published little to no evidence of progress and only 14 out of 127 commitments (11%) have language or specific initiatives mentioning Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLCs).
NbS Policy Tracker
In a recent evaluation of global policies, Nature4Climate in partnership with Arboretica uncovered startling statistics about the allocation of budgets for nature-based solutions (NbS). The findings, powered by advanced artificial intelligence, indicate that a mere 12% of policies worldwide have dedicated budgets for NbS implementation.
Natural climate solutions
In the next decade, nature can provide one third of the solution to climate change.
We need the world to become #NaturePositive.
