Financing sustainable land use: Unlocking business opportunities in sustainable land use with blended finance
The Blended Finance Taskforce and KOIS Invest released a paper about blended finance for sustainable land-use (SLU), analysing how blended finance can mitigate risks and enhance returns for investors in this sector. SLU seeks to protect the climate by reducing carbon emissions and preserving carbon sinks. Private investment in SLU is not however at the scale needed to tackle the problem. According to KOIS, there needs to be a paradigm shift in the way in which (i) private sector investors view investment opportunities in SLU and how (ii) public and philanthropic investors engage to catalyse private capital in SDGs.
