Webinar:Biodiversity Markets: Where are we and where are we going

An online webinar featuring an overview of biodiversity markets, followed by an expert panel on biodiversity markets, and a Q+A session.

On Friday, April 1, we Mission Markets hosted an online webinar featuring an overview of biodiversity markets, followed by an expert panel on biodiversity markets, and a Q+A session.   This webinar is now being archived, and will be available soon in this space.

The confirmed speakers are:

Becca Madsen, Ecosystem Marketplace;
Frank Vorhies, Earthmind;
Ricardo Bayon, EKO Asset Management Partners;
Mike Van Patten, Mission Markets.

Why Attend:
At the 10th Conference of Parties of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD COP10) held in Nagoya, Japan last November, 193 governments promised to halve biodiversity loss by 2020. The IUCN estimates that $300 billion per year needs to be flowing to conservation by 2020 to meet this goal, but only around $37 billion is being delivered—mostly from governments and multilateral organizations whose coffers are entering crisis mode now. Alternative sources of financing are needed, and Ecosystem Marketplace hopes that SpeciesBanking.com will showcase examples of policies and programs that drive private investments in biodiversity restoration and preservation. Please join us to learn about the current state of biodiversity markets and what to expect in this realm going forward.

Webcast Details:
Friday, 1 April, 10 AM EDT (2 PM GMT). Webinar is capped to 500 participants. RSVP here.
