Since its beginnings in 2016, the WWF Landscape Finance Lab has worked toward developing a methodological approach for financing the restoration, rejuvenation and conservation of global landscapes at scale. Through work with WWF teams on the ground and a myriad of other partners and stakeholders around the world, the Lab has taken lessons learned and refined and systemised its landscape finance philosophy and theory of change. By the end of 2019, the Lab had six structured landscape programmes, each of which are projected to bring in at least $100 million in investment and built its first comprehensive landscape investment vehicle.
The Lab’s innovative work and evolution is detailed in the latest Annual Report. This document explains the Lab’s Vision, Mission and the key elements that are essential to achieving integrated landscape management. Additionally, the Report provides summaries of all of the Lab’s landscape and finance programmes, from South America to the South Pacific. There are also deep-dives into the organisation’s achievements toward creating a hub of practical landscape knowledge and learning.
