Sustainable Finance for Biodiversity in Brazil and Colombia
Sustainable Finance for Biodiversity in Brazil and Colombia (SF4B) is a research and training project aimed at building the capacity of policy makers and financial market actors in the use and application of sustainable finance taxonomies for the protection and sustainable use of biodiversity and ecosystems.
Brazil has the largest biodiversity in the world, comprising two hotspots, six terrestrial biomes and three large marine ecosystems. Colombia is home to almost 10% of all the planet's biodiversity. However, the loss of biodiversity in these countries makes it urgent to channel more financial resources to the protection and restoration of biodiversity and ecosystems.
In Brazil, it will include research activities, capacity building, stakeholder consultations, development of a prototype financial taxonomy, and knowledge exchange among partner countries. Part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI), the project is executed by Fondo Acción in Colombia, by FGVces in Brazil, and the main executor and coordinator is the Frankfurt School - UNEP Collaborating Centre for Climate and Sustainable Energy Finance.
