Theme: Catalyzing Net Zero Modernized Economies in Harmony with Nature

The climate actions taken today and over the next decade will determine the fate of current and future generations. The severity and frequency of natural disasters and extreme weather are prompting a paradigm shift to mobilize public and private investments towards clean energy, industrial decarbonization, electrification, and nature-based solutions to meet the 1.5°C goal of the Paris Agreement. Shifting from pledges to actions to achieve Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) targets requires cross-sector collaboration to mobilize finance applying a comprehensive climate disclosure framework. Join us for a series of topics presented by the Coalition for Rainforest Nations, Deloitte, and fellow Global Climate Allies.

9:30-10:15am

Carbon Disclosure: Facilitating Harmonization of Standards to Advance a Comprehensive Climate Disclosure Framework.

Adoption of the ISSB standards worldwide is needed to help achieve true harmonization and avoid risk of a fragmented approach to regulation. Global baseline standards are in motion to enhance confidence of users of sustainability reporting to achieve consistent, comparable, and reliable climate-related disclosure.

The Business Case for Nature: There is No Net Zero without Nature

With the interest in ESG investing at all-time high, institutional investors are shining a light on a previously sidelined indicator of environmental health: biodiversity. But despite an increasing number of funds and technologies being created, natural capital investment opportunities remain limited, and biodiversity needs to be taken into consideration by governments, companies, and the investment community. Research shows a huge awareness gap between what exactly should be done and how addressing risks and opportunities related to natural capital can drive contribution towards a sustainable future.

Exploring the Potential of Sub-National REDD+ Approach in India and their contribution towards SDGs

Indian forests inhabit diverse ecosystems and habitats that provide numerous ecosystem services. More than 300 million people, predominantly dependent on forests, derive their livelihoods from the forests. This dependence, coupled with a lack of sufficient infrastructure and financial support, results in increased anthropogenic pressure on forests, resulting in degradation and human–animal conflicts.REDD+ mechanism can play a pivotal role in fostering the protection and restoration of natural ecosystems and securing the rights and livelihoods of local communities. It can also help to generate an added revenue stream and allow for the effective transfer of technologies, knowledge, and expertise while simultaneously reducing and/or removing GHG emissions globally.
