Healthy, thriving and biodiverse landscapes are vital to ensuring that the world stays within a well below 2C pathway, so it was no surprise that the financing of these macro-climate solutions was a hot topic at the summit in Dublin earlier in November.

Led by local communities, landscape programmes allow an elevated scale that can attract new public and private finance and deliver SDGs.”
