Financing and Valuation of Ecosystem-based Adaptation in the Philippines
The AIM Gov. Jose B. Fernandez, Jr. (JBF) Center for Sustainable Finance has published a report on ‘The Financial and Economic Case for Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) in the Philippines’, commissioned by Earth Security and funded by the International Climate Initiative of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety. This report provides an overview of financing EbA projects to help the banking and finance community appreciate the value of ecosystems and their role in mitigating the risks and negative impacts of climate change through EbA, which may result in more resilient businesses and communities.
