Scaling-up Finance Mechanisms for Biodiversity

Resource Type: 

"This book, produced under the auspices of the OECD Working Party on
Biodiversity, Water and Ecosystems, considers the opportunities for scaling‐up
finance for biodiversity from six “innovative financial mechanisms” (as classified
in Goal 4 of the Convention on Biological Diversity’s Strategy for Resource
Mobilization). These are: environmental fiscal reform; payments for ecosystem
services; biodiversity offsets; markets for green products; biodiversity in climate
change funding; and biodiversity in international development finance.
Drawing on literature and more than 40 case studies worldwide, the book
addresses the following questions: What are these mechanisms and how do
they work? How much finance have they mobilised and what potential is there
to scale this up? And what are the key design and implementation issues –
including environmental and social safeguards – that need to be addressed
so that governments can help ensure these mechanisms are environmentally
effective, economically efficient and distributionally equitable?"
