Ibrahim Thiaw – Financing restoration to close emissions gap, GLF 2016 Marrakesh

Ibrahim Thiaw is the Deputy Executive Director for the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). At the Global Landscapes Forum in Marrakesh, he made the case for increased finance for restoration to help countries fight climate change.

The Discussion Forum he spoke at addressed the funding/finance gap challenge (i.e. the difference between the supply and demand of capital for forest and landscapes restoration), and how a number of novel products and mechanisms aim to leverage public funding with private finance, including the challenges to get such schemes off the ground and replicating them in different countries and regions.
