FMO is the Dutch development bank. They offer capital and knowledge to companies, projects and financial institutions in developing countries.
During the Leaders for Nature Forum of 2015 government, NGO's, corporations and knowledge institutes worked together to find joint solutions for our most pressing natural capital challenges.
FMO is one of the Leaders for Nature. This is their challenge: Make sustainable investments bankable
Together with the Leaders for Nature we explored how we can make sustainable investments bankable. We used the case study Aqua Soil Approach.
On 17th April 2015, IUCN organized the Leaders for Nature forum in Eindhoven. Except supported IUCN in a year long trajectory to prepare and guide the Forum in a new format. This included concept development, stakeholder involvement and preparation of the challenges.
The preparations resulted in 10 challenges brought in by the network of Leaders for Nature. Over 150 participants from business, NGOs and government joined the forum. Guided by Except, teams worked on the most pressing natural capital challenges.
