The 22nd PEP meeting, New York City

ECOTRUST took part in the 22nd Poverty Environment Partnership (PEP) meeting on the 19th of June, 2017 in New York City. The meeting under the objective “Investing in Natural Capital – for an inclusive green & blue economy to implement the SDGs and Paris Climate Agreement, focused on exploring the diverse types of natural capital investment that are being made across the developing world that have implications for ‘zero poverty’, ‘zero carbon’ and ‘zero net loss of natural capital’.

The meeting also attempted to understand who and what is driving this investment as well as what is constraining it. It also discussed the kinds of roles that PEP can play to improve quantity, quality and confidence in ‘triple zero’ natural capital investment.
