The Green Finance Academy connects nature conservation with business and finance. It trains environmental and development professionals to become an expert on bankable projects and to work with the tools to design projects that not only meet project goals, but also generate financial returns for investors.
Discussions between two organisations that had submitted a MoMo proposal in 2014 - FMO and Global Canopy Programme - made one challenge stand out and need immediate attention: the lack of a pipeline of bankable projects. This directly led IUCN NL, Alterra and Nyenrode Business University to develop the Green Finance Academy.
