  • This is in process, still draft study, we’re looking for feedback and even for additional partnersI’m going to describe ILM and what we mean by landscape financeLPFN
  • the funds required to support on-farm, off-farm investments that deliver ILM’s multiple objectives and enabling institutions-sustainable agricultural management-agroforestry, conservation tillage and rotational grazing that are coordinated with other activities within the landscapes,-landscape-scale interventions related to ecosystem protection and restoration. -institutions that enable landscape coordination and create incentives for ILM (development of stakeholder planningplatforms, supportive policy and the development of product and ecosystem markets to support ILM activities. )ILM finance therefore encompasses the direct investment in public goods as well as enabling investments (funding the generation of the incentiveto invest, often by financial institutions with no expectation of financial reward) as well as asset investments (finance for an activitythat creates tangible value, mostly through loans and equity investments)
  • Research, strengthening3 on building the enabling environmentoutreach
  • First activity is to do this foundational study, ultimate we want to inflcuence finance institutions and governments
  • Sectors- agricultural production, watershed management, forestry, biodiversity, bio-energy, community development), and integrated investmentmodels are often seen to be risky relative to single-sector alternatives, particularly by private investors.
  • Including financiers and landscape stakeholders, why do they do it.
  • But let me start with the lead here. 5 recs for climate audience
  • Financing strategies for integrated landscape management

    1. 1. Financing strategies for integrated landscape management Global Landscapes Forum Warsaw, Poland November 16, 2013
    2. 2. Elements of integrated landscape management 1. Shared or agreed management objectives encompass multiple benefits (the full range of goods and services needed) from the landscape. 2. Field, farm and forest practices are designed to contribute to multiple objectives including human wellbeing, food and fiber production, climate change mitigation, and conservation of biodiversity and ecosystem services. 3. Ecological, social, and economic interactions among different parts of the landscape are managed to realize positive synergies among interests and actors or to mitigate negative trade-offs. 4. Collaborative, community-engaged processes for dialogue, planning, negotiating and monitoring decisions are in place. 5. Markets and public policies are shaped to achieve the diverse set of landscape objectives and institutional requirements.
    3. 3. ILM activities in need of finance ● On-farm sustainable agricultural management coordinated with other activities in a landscape ● Landscape-scale interventions related to ecosystem protection and restoration ● Institutions that enable landscape coordination and create incentives for ILM ● ILM finance encompasses ● direct investment in public goods ● enabling investments ● asset investments that creates tangible value

    6. 6. Finance working group members Working Group members • UN-REDD • UN Found (coordinator) • World Bank • GEF (coordinator) • World Economic Forum • EcoAg (coordinator) • IFAD Consultants • Forest Trends • Earth Security Initiative • Hivos • Lexeme Consulting • The Global Mechanism • The Nature Conservancy • UNDP • UNEP Finance Initiative • UNEP-WCMC
    7. 7. ● Current finance mechanisms are sectorfocused ● Gaps in understanding ways public and private institutions finance ILM ● Gaps in understanding how landscape initiatives access finance N Palmer (CIAT) Rationale for Study on Financing ILM
    8. 8. Project Objectives 1. Improve understanding of the financial case for ILM in a variety of contexts. 2. Improve understanding of the barriers to ILM finance. 3. Identify strategies for public and private financing institutions to work with landscape stakeholders to finance ILM. 4. Mobilize dialogue with financing institutions to improve strategies / mechanisms to support ILM.
    9. 9. Project Timeline January 2014 November Sept-Oct July-Aug May • WG Workshop • Scoping studies begin • Scoping report drafts completed • Case studies selected for finance and landscape analysis • Draft policy brief for GLF • Finalize report and policy briefs • Develop workplan for next steps
    10. 10. Key recommendations for climate policy makers and program managers 1. Coordinate climate investments with those of other relevant sectors to support ILM. 2. Design climate adaptation and mitigation programs to support the enabling institutions required to attract appropriate private investment to ILM. 3. Create multi-objective investment mechanisms. 4. Formulate financing strategies based on input from landscape stakeholders. 5. Develop tools to calculate risk and return across multiple dimensions, over time.
