Bioheritage Adaptive Governance and Policy Biosecurity Instruments Launch
On March 31, 2021, TTW CEO Melanie Mark Shadbolt, who is also the Kaihautū Ngātahi for the Bioheritage National Science Challenge, presented at the Wellington launch of Biodiversity Instruments Report. The Bioheritage National Science Challenge and the Adaptive Governance & Policy Team (S07) commissioned Climate Innovation Lab to identify the potential for innovative finance and funding mechanisms to support biodiversity protection and co-governance under Te Tiriti o Waitangi. The report identifies and discusses a range of opportunities for climate focused investments and complementary policies that preserve, support and expand Aotearoa New Zealand’s unique biological heritage.

David Hall & Sam Lindsay (2021) Scaling Climate Finance : Biodiversity Instruments. Concept Paper. Auckland : Mohio Research.
A Concept Paper which identifies unrealised opportunities for increasing investment into projects and activities that preserve, support and expand Aotearoa New Zealand’s unique biological heritage. Redirecting finance and funding through climate finance instruments – such as those described in the pages that follow – can accelerate the shift toward a more resilient, low-emissions future.
The objectives of the Concept Paper are two-fold: (1) to galvanise the local conversation about the opportunities for innovative financial instruments to deliver biodiversity outcomes; and (2) to use these proposals as catalysts to create ‘coalitions of the willing’ who can bring these instruments to market.
