State of Finance for Nature report


United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the World Economic Forum (WEF) and ELD have jointly released the flagship report, “State of Finance For Nature: Tripling investments in nature-based solutions by 2030”.


If the world is to meet the climate change, biodiversity, and land degradation targets, it needs to close a USD 4.1 trillion financing gap in nature by 2050. The current investments in Nature-based solutions amount to USD 133 billion – about 0.10 per cent of global GDP, most of which comes from public sources.

  • About the report

    As countries and companies step up their commitments to fight the climate and nature crises, it is of paramount importance to use the post-COVID-19 recovery to scale-up finance and investment in nature-based solutions to restore degraded land and tackle the climate and biodiversity crises while creating jobs. The State of Finance for Nature report present the results of a global analysis which tracks investment flows into nature-based solutions and identifies future investments needed to meet the biodiversity, climate and land restoration targets.
