Report of the UN Environment Programme:
“State of Finance for Nature”
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) shows in its report “State of Finance for Nature” the status of current investments in Nature Based Solutions. Nature Base Solutions are nature-inspired solutions that deliver environmental and social benefits while being cost-effective and contributing to resilience building.
The majority of investments made come from the public sector, with only 14% being private investments. In order to achieve environmental protection goals, 536 billion USD – about 4 times as much – would have to be invested instead of the current 133 billion USD.
