Agriculture and nature

Researchers at the Grantham Research Institute have been looking at how finance can support a just transition in nature transformation (see Just Nature: How finance can support a just transition at the interface of action on climate and biodiversity). The Just Transition Finance Lab will continue to look at the social ramifications of the transformation in agriculture to reduce carbon-intensive methods and increase nature-based solutions, and at how finance can respond to these social considerations.

For instance, the just transition is a critical factor for the implementation of the Global Biodiversity Framework. A transition that delivers decent work, social inclusion and the eradication of poverty in the shift to a net zero and climate-resilient economy depends on, and can impact, our biodiversity goals in agriculture, forestry, land-use and the oceans.
