As the largest single operational and financial UN player in the field of environmental sustainability, UNDP is widely recognized as a global leader in supporting governments to sharpen policy, access finance and develop capacity for the management of biodiversity and ecosystems for sustainable development and poverty eradication. Under the Strategic Plan covering the period 2018-2021, UNDP’s work in Ecosystems
One of the focus area of UNDP’s EBD work is biodiversity finance and UNDP is one of the founding member of the Taskforce on Nature Related Financial Disclosures (TNFD). Nature sits at the heart of climate mitigation and adaptation strategies for government and the private sector. The world’s natural capital is fundamental to economic stability and growth. Approximately $44 trillion, i.e. 50% of global GDP is moderately or highly dependent upon nature according to a WEF Report.
There is a need to rapidly increase the resilience of the global economy by re-establishing economic support for nature in line with existing agreements such as the Paris Agreement, Post 2020 Biodiversity Targets and the UN SDGs.
TNFD was launched in June 2021, with Nature In Scope document published, following an informal preparatory phase during which foundations were laid for the initiative’s proposed technical scope, governance and workplan. The goal of this market-led body is to provide a framework by 2023 for corporates and financial institutions to report and act on evolving nature-related risks, in order to support a shift in global financial flows away from nature-negative outcomes and toward nature-positive outcomes. The Framework will aim to both incorporate existing standards and frameworks whilst being agile enough to be integrated into and enhance existing disclosures and standards. Allowing financial institutions and real economy actors, to better measure and manage their nature-related risks and opportunities.
