BIOFIN, a United Nations Development Programme-managed global programme, exists to demonstrate how nature-positive economies can work for people and the planet.


The Biodiversity Finance Initiative - BIOFIN

BIOFIN was initiated ten years ago at the CBD COP 11, by UNDP and the European Commission, in response to the urgent global need to divert more finance from all possible sources towards global and national biodiversity goals.

Now present in 40 countries, BIOFIN is working with governments, civil-society, vulnerable communities, and the private sector to catalyse investments in nature.

Investments that not only protect biodiversity, but let it flourish.

Investments that create jobs and opportunities for communities reeling from the impacts of COVID-19.

Investments that secure a sustainable future for people and the planet.
