Wishing you a regenerative 2021!

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) 5 months ago

As we reflect on the past year we thank members, partners and friends for continuing on this journey with us. We look forward to further collaboration in 2021. 

Last year saw increased global commitments to a net zero future by companies and governments. We believe landscapes play a key role in realising these goals and working towards a more equitable and sustainable future for people and planet.

With celebration we share some snippets from 2020 in our first newsletter of the year 

https://mailchi.mp/landscapefinancelab/wishing-you-a-regenerative-2021

We would love to hear your stories and lessons too - tweet us here. 

 

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.

Check out our latest Annual report here!

 

 
Lab founder and Lead Paul Chatterton co-moderated the Impact Days annual conference in Vienna on 11 October. Bringing together the startup world and impact investors the conference aims to inspire, connect and empower people and organisations to confront the most challenging issues of our time. 
 
Paul shared some takeaways: 
  • ESG is out and impact is in. No longer enough to do no harm, you have to show real benefit.
  • Institutional investors see impact investing as a niche market, but one that has major growth potential. Many are developing major new products.
  • Metrics are key to showing impact. There is still a need to align the many impact systems - PRI, GIIN, SDG, SBT etc. A simplification will result in businesses rapidly retooling to address the challenge. 
  • Instruments that aggregate startups and green businesses will be important to help reach the scale of new finance being allocated by the institutional investors.

The Lab needs your help!

Next week Paul our founder, and Raphaele, our Markets Lead,  travel to Cambodia to help facilitate the SCALE Planning Workshop, a key milestone for the SCALE project. This one-day-workshop, hosted by WWF in partnership with H&M group aims to share background of the SCALE project, discuss findings from the feasibility studies and assess the potential to develop a full landscape model design moving into the second phase of the program.

During the workshop, key stakeholders will be invited to better understand concepts of a landscape approach, check assumptions made in the feasibility studies, identify information gaps, and express interest to play a role in the program’s next phase. A proposed business model to secure sustainable financing for the program’s future implementation will also be presented and tested. Further, the workshop will aim to understand the realities of landscape program implementation, in order to manage expectations moving forward. The workshop will also include a day of garment factory visits, to understand the real factory environment and the various challenges they face when considering switching to green alternatives, like understaning their current financing and business models.

Participants include government; private sector including international clothing brands and plantation companies; local and international NGOs; financial institutions and development agencies.

We look forward to a fruitful trip!

This years edition of the Global Landscapes Forum was a great meeting in Bonn.

Together with Commonland, Gold Standard and IERS, the Lab presented a launchpad on the 'A Philosophy of Landscapes: Standardising Approaches to Scale-up Landscape Restoration"

Together with a lively disucssion and interactive presentation, the group committed to a joint effort to keep pushing landscapes forward as investable.

Using the metaphor of the railways, we can see the parallels in landscapes and draw inspiration from another historical once-insurmountable problem.

The launch of Commonland’s landscape company Wide Open Agriculture on the Australian stock exchange signals the potential now for a landscape industry.  Drawing from the lessons from the last industrial revolution, we need much simpler and more integrated models that bring together engineering, finance and political approvals.  Landscape “companies” are one such model drive a shift from experimentation to implementation.

The presentation slides are attached and the full session is recorded here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUVhMc0Zbdk

The presenation had an audience participation element. We asked two quesions, the first appears here as a word cloud of the issues:

 

At the end of the presentation, we asked for hopes and commitments:

Overall it was a great session! Thank you to everyone who took part in the room and to our online audience.

The lab team also used the opportunity to meet with collaborators on the Landscape Sourcing report.

At this year’s Climate Innovation Summit, EIT Climate-KIC's flagship event, our Founder Paul Chatterton lead a breakout session on Landscape Finance with Anton Gigov and Jodie Smith from TECA in Fiji.  The session was very well recieved.


Landscape Finance "Dolphin Tank" Session

Healthy, thriving and biodiverse landscapes are vital to ensuring that the world stays within a well below 2C pathway. The past several decades have seen dramatic growth in landscape initiatives focused on biodiversity conservation, regenerative agriculture, climate change adaptation and mitigation, clean waters, restoration of degraded lands and sustainable forest, coastal and wetlands management, and resilience, through diverse communities of practice, but these need to be more joined-up, systematic and significant in size to address the global scale of current challenges. Many face critical gaps in leadership, capital and institutional capacity.

Though there are vast new pools of financial capital available for investment in sustainable landscapes, only a fraction reaches the land sector, and even less for inclusive green economy models. Landscape initiatives , meanwhile, are struggling to find ways to access this financial capital that are aligned with their regenerative visions. In financial parlance, they are failing to generate investable deals for these funds. The need for systemic transformation has been highlighted by most key players in the area.

They focused on key questions: How can investors and landscape players start experimenting and testing systemic approaches in the field? The session will take a pragmatic approach, based on a real landscape example, to understand what the opportunities and challenges in landscape finance are. Through a ´dolphin tank´ style presentation focused on the particular Fiji landscape, they co-created an even stronger proposed business case. 

Paul speaking on stage at the keynote of the Climate Innovation Summit.

It's a busy week for the Lab! We're at the Sustainable Landscapes Conference in London which addresses how business can manage risk, improve relationships and drive resilience in agricultural supply chains.

Our Markets Lead, Raphaele Deau is speaking about the SCALE program in Cambodia tomorrow on this panel:

 Sustainable energy sourcing and conservation in Cambodian forests, with H&M and WWF

The Innovation Forum format is a little unusually in that it is an entirely off-the-record discussion that enables open and honest disclosure from speakers and genuine participation from the audience.

We hope to see you there, if not, follow along the discussion on Twitter!

 

On October 5th, Paul Chatterton (Lab Founder) and Anton Gigov (Ikigai) took part in the Central Europe Impact Day event in Vienna led by the Impact Hub.

At CEE Impact Day, more than 250 impact investors, social entrepreneurs and executives from across Central & Eastern Europe met to join forces to shape a more sustainable, inclusive world using social innovation. 

Paul moderated the Climate Action session focusing on accelerating exponential solutions. It was a productive day with great discussion on how to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and build a stronger impact ecosystem.

The lab is featured in EIT Climate-KIC Innovation Spotlight, where they explore some of the most promising innovations from around their community. 

Land use accounts for one fourth of world emissions and potentially over one third of possible solutions. But currently, in terms of green finance, only one per cent is going to land-based solutions: Investors and land managers still struggle to generate high-quality and de-risked land-use projects.

In the meantime, major corporations are increasingly engaged with the concept of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability practices. With their brand power and capital, large corporations, in partnership with environmental organisations, have the potential to drive green finance towards land-based solutions, transforming industries and supply chains, and mitigating climate change.

“There are a number of ways corporations can act on climate. Most of the prominent companies have put measures into place to reduce their emissions by 2020 or 2030, in line with the two degrees UNFCCC target, and using Science Based Target to do so. This is the case of many WWF partners,” said Paul Chatterton, Founder and Lead, WWF Landscape Finance Lab. “Additionally, a growing number of companies have pledged to a zero deforestation supply chain by 2020 or 2030, engaging their operations in increasing climate resilience and carbon sinks. But, implementing these commitments is a complex and challenging issue that requires strong partnership and multi-stakeholder approaches.”

The Landscape Finance Lab is pioneering an integrated approach that brings together sectors, scales and stakeholders. It incubates landscape programs and sources, structures, designs and applies new financing solutions. By moving beyond silos of individual interests and working together around one common landscape vision, all stakeholders can find mutually beneficial solutions to achieve environmental, social and economic results.  If we can show that a few landscapes can be sustainable then all landscapes can be sustainable.

The Landscape Finance Lab is supported by EIT Climate-KIC  

In June, we asked all our members of the Lab to fill out a short survey to let us know how we are serving you and what could be done better. Rachel Sinha from the Systems Studio ran the survey and interviews and compiled a report for us. In this short webinar we review her findings and share our plans to address your needs. Thank you to everyone who participated, your feedback is invaluable to helping us grow. Rachel's presentation with her findings is attached.

Watch the full conversation with Rachel and the Lab here

We summarized your feedback into these Top 10 Takeaways:

1. Clear, inspiring case studies
2. Raise the profile of the Lab
3. Show progress
4. Sharper at financing
5. Clearer on how to engage
6. Sharpen focus
7. Build capacity in WWF
8. Manage potential investors better, structured follow-ups

Here's how we're addressing them, to hear more infomation about each, listen to the webinar recording or add your questions in the comments.

1. Clear, inspiring case studies

  • Share case studies from the Sustainable Landscape Challenge
  • One webinar a month from a landscape team to encourage sharing
  • Highlight longer form interviews on Medium and our blog

2. Raise the profile of the Lab

  • We publish an annual report
  • Completed communications and branding exercise, to be rolled out by September
  • Lab team to attend more events, here's where we are going this year:
  • Governors Climate and Forest Task Force, San Francisco, 19 Sep
  • Climate Innovation Summit, Dublin Oct 6-8
  • Responsible business summit, London, Oct 10-11. 
  • Innovation Forum sustainable landscape conference on Nov 7, in London. We will speak about the SCALE program in Cambodia, together with H&M speakers.
  • Global Landscapes Forum, Bonn, Dec 1-2

3. Show progress

  • Show deliverable on SCALE as a key case study (created a 4 pager, we will be attending events with H&M)
  • Focus on Paraguay and Brazil landscapes with blogs and updates - we’ll have one later this week on Paraguay!

4. Sharper at financing

We aim to:

  • Recruit consultants and partners accordingly
  • Integrate a realistic finance offering into the Lab's business model

5. Clearer on how to engage

  • Inductions happen twice a week on Thursdays, if you missed out or want a refresher, sign up or email Natalia
  • Anyone can comment or ask questions on any of the landscapes on the platform, we encourage you to contribute
  • The blog is open to anyone to share knowledge, lessons or their case studies
  • We have shared a market strategy with the Network

6. Sharpen focus

  • We are working on a Learning Academy to give landscape teams more structured milestones, lessons and resources (the Challenge was a great tool to test this!)
  • We just finished a communications audit that helped us to clarify our USP and goals, we’ll be sharing more clearly what we do and how in September.

7. Build capacity in WWF

  • Running an in-person training in Cambodia later this year
  • Ran a test training on landscape sourcing in April
  • Building a landscape academy with the ACAI
  • Systematic landscape training for all landscape teams in business with the Lab
  • If successful, repeat externally, possibly with Commonland as a partner

8. Manage potential investors better, structured follow-ups

  • Our work with Bankable Projects should help us move in this direction

9. Support cost of project development

  • This is not the role of the Lab! We are not fundraising for landscapes, but we can introduce teams to funders
  • We are considering establishing a seedfund within the Lab in the next year or so - that would help recover design costs

10. Host more meetings

  • In person meetings are hard to execute! 
  • We are working with the ACAI to do more peer-to-peer learning through specific introductions. Rather than big group calls, to connect 2 teams directly who have similar challenges
  • Host more topic-themed calls

 Many thanks to Rachel for her inspired work! Her full presentation is attached and feel free to let us know if you have any further questions or concerns!

Lab 2017 Annual Report

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) Feb 23, 2018

We’re excited to share the Landscape Finance Lab 2017 annual report which offers a highlight of our year supporting landscapes, learning from the Lab commmunity and collaborating with fellow and new partners. 
 
          
 
2017 has been a big year for the Lab, from officially launching at the WWF Annual conference in May to securing funding from Climate-KIC in the summer followed by presenting at the Bonn Climate COP in November.
 
We have been working hard to improve our incubation model so that we can offer a structured support process to landscape teams and also taken onboard the advice of the Community following our annual evaluation in July.  Following which we concentrated our efforts on 4 specific landscapes which have been moving forward in their development plans very well.  The launch of the Capitalising Conservation report at the end of 2017 was a great moment, especially as we move towards a bigger focus on finance in 2018.

LFL 2017 evaluation

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) Sep 4, 2017

The Lab has been in “start up” mode for a year and officially launched to the WWF network at the 2017 Annual Conference.  You may have heard us say that “we’re building the plane as we fly” - that said it’s important for us to keep checking that it is, at least, flying in the right direction! 
 
We are extremely grateful to the 60 respondents and interviewees who have taken the time to shape this.  We share an excerpt below - for the full summary report please see here.  
 
We would love you to contribute anything you notice, or add any further comments on where you want to see the Lab move in the future.
 
 
 

Priority considerations

  • Focus energy on fewer landscapes to produce advanced case studies based on results 
  • Enlisting co-leaders with business, entrepreneurship and finance experience to diversify skills in the team 
  • Financial sustainability for the lab itself so that we can be an example 
  • Clearer more structured process for incubating landscape teams
  • Building an ecosystem of contributors
  • Clarify targeted communications which tell the story of impact

A special thank you to Chelsea Robinson for her beautiful execution and delivery of this evaluation. 

 

Evaluation summary | Tuesday 5th September, 5pm CET 

Join us to hear more about the results of this evaluation, what we have learned over the last year and how we intend to act on this. 

This will be useful for those who want to shape the Landscape Finance Lab going forward; are currently working on landscape programs, and also if you are working on a start up style initiative and want to avoid our mistakes!

Stage Gate Criteria

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) Jul 7, 2017

The portfolio development model includes ‘stage gates’ to prioritise concepts with most investment potential. Concepts that move between "Discover" to "Structure" and "Develop" will need to meet the Stage Gate criteria one and two below. These are based on common invest-ment criteria of the world’s largest public and private funds for sustainable land use.

The Lab’s online platform will assess how well concepts meet these and flag those that do to the Lab team and Champions so that these can progress to Peer Review quickly.

We will expect these points to be addressed in the concept note and information on these criteria entered on the online platform.

Glossary of terms

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) Nov 9, 2016

A list of commonly used language on the platform explained. This will be continuously updated and if you do have questions we welcome you to comment below. 

Landscape: A socio-ecological system that consists of natural and/or human-modified ecosystems, and which is influenced by distinct ecological, historical, economic and socio-cultural processes and activities

Landscape approach: A conceptual framework whereby stakeholders in a landscape aim to reconcile competing social, economic and environmental objectives

Integrated landscape management: A way of managing the landscape that involves collaboration among multiple stakeholders, with the purpose of achieving sustainable landscapes

Sustainable landscape: A sustainable landscape helps to meet the principles of sustainable development as defined in the UN Sustainable Development Goals. These are landscapes that can meet the needs of the present, without compromising options for future generations.

How do I submit my concept?

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) Oct 10, 2016

To go directly to the submission form click on the drawing icon  on the top right of any page. You can also go submit on the "Landscapes" page where you will find additional information on the criteria and process. 

Who reviews our concept?

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) Oct 10, 2016

The LFL team are developing a group of "Ambassadors" who represent various Practice themes and specialisms. This means at a minimum you will receive advice from this group shortly after submitting. 

The concept is visible to all platform members therefore you have an opportunity to gather reviews, advice and feedback from peers.  

To gain interest from peers you can "tag" them in to your idea so they receive an email alert of your submission. We recommend doing this by leaving a comment under your submission and linking users to it; 

We are keen to design the platform according to your needs and also fix any bugs that crop up. Please email Deesha (chandradeesha@gmail.com) where you have suggestions. 

We are currently exploring referral pathways for submissions that do not fit the LFL criteria. This includes links with Impact Ventures at WWF Switzerland. 

Resources will also be linked out to existing platforms and also highlight contact leads where there are existing relationships within the network. 

Programmes under $50million

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) Oct 10, 2016

We encourage submissions even when the funding required is under $50million as an initial attempt to combine some of the smaller programmes in to a larger portfolio can be made so that you can access the relevant finance tools. 

Where concepts cannot be grouped together to reach the $50million mark we will attempt to connect you with a more suited initiative that can support you. 

Who can submit a concept?

Posted by Deesha Chandra (Admin) Oct 10, 2016

All WWF teams can submit a concept. While the Landscape Finance Lab focuses primarily on large scale programmes we are also developing links with complementary support initiatives both within WWF and externally. This means we will have the capacity to create links between your team and the most appropriate development process for your idea.
