Making financial incentives green

BONN, Germany (Landscape News) — Finding innovative ways to fund agricultural projects while protecting tropical forests is key for ensuring global environmental equilibrium.

Forests and agriculture combined hold more than 30 percent of the solution to the climate crisis, but currently receive less than 3 percent of climate finance, according to UN Environment, the U.N.’s environment program.

A discussion at the Global Landscapes Forum in Bonn, Germany, highlighted various potential pitfalls and possibilities to achieve international climate targets and U.N. development goals.
