Sida is issuing a Call for expressions of interest, to mobilise private sector capital towards positive impact for biodiversity and climate adaptation globally and regionally in Africa.
Why a call for nature?
Climate change and loss of biodiversity present two increasingly important challenges for modern civilisation. Biologically diverse ecosystems are critical for livelihoods, health and well-being, and nature underpins a majority of economic activities. Ecosystem services are also central in society’s response to climate change, in building resilience and adapting to its effects.
The objective of this Call is to identify and select partners suitable for a Sida guarantee, for mobilising capital towards outcomes, services and behaviours that benefit nature.
The Sida guarantee is a flexible risk mitigation instrument, designed to share risk with private actors to mobilise capital. When Sida shares risk with investors they can raise additional capital and take on additional risks that otherwise would not be possible.
