The Little Book Series
The Little Biodiversity Finance Book is a guide to proactive investment in natural capital (PINC) and an introduction to financing options for biodiversity and ecosystems services. It will be launched on 2oth October at the upcoming UN biodiversity conference in Nagoya, Japan, where leaders will meet to discuss new and innovative ways to finance biodiversity and ecosystems. One of the key elements of the book is an analysis of new sources of finance that could raise up to USD 141 billion by 2020 to help meet the target of halting global biodiversity.
It seeks to demystify the forest finance landscape, and presents a clear framework of realistic and widely applicable options for decision makers to catalyse further action and debate in this field. As a non-partisan analysis, the Little Forest Finance Book does not favour one proposal over another. We do hope, however, that our work will aid understanding and encourage collaborative dialogue on this vitally important area of research.
