Kickstart Climate Finance Week Ireland (#CFWI23) with Biodiversity Finance Day, featuring an illustrious lineup of world-renowned experts in biodiversity conservation and finance. Biodiversity finance is the cornerstone of our efforts to protect and restore the natural world. It encompasses a range of financial mechanisms, investments, and strategies designed to safeguard the rich tapestry of life on Earth, from the smallest pollinators to the mightiest forests. Earth's biodiversity is under unprecedented threat, with species extinction rates soaring and ecosystems under stress. This day is dedicated to exploring the critical intersection of finance and biodiversity. Discover how sustainable investments and innovative financial strategies, guided by these leading global voices, can help us combat this crisis.


Join us as we welcome esteemed speakers including Aoibhinn Ni Shuilleabhain, Mark Halle, Alex McLean and Thomas Viegas.
