Nature Investment: Opportunities in Southeast Asia Webinar

Monday, July 24, 4pm

Nature investments represent a logical and powerful response to the combined climate and nature emergency in Southeast Asia, and private capital has a role to play in furnishing the US$200 billion per annum that could be required in the region.

Investors have a choice between a range of financial and nature market instruments. This webinar gave an overview of these nature investment options, as well as provided a deeper understanding through two case studies.

The author, Dr Pernille Holtedahl of Imperial College London, presented her latest research findings, followed by views from a panel of respondents.
