Podcast: LDCs must be part of the global investment pipeline for nature

Alejandro Litovsky, CEO and Founder of Earth Security was interviewed by Esther Pan Sloane, Head of Partnerships at the UN Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), to kick-off UNCDF's 2021 podcast series.

Alejandro and Esther discuss how investments in natural capital can help the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) to reach economic development goals; how to make natural capital count in investments; which types of private investors are best suited to these transactions; the role of blended finance partnerships in attracting private sector investments; and how the world's poorest countries can benefit from new global investment pipelines for natural capital.

Biodiversity-rich LDCs have a unique opportunity to leverage the value of their natural capital and participate in a global investment pipeline that promotes regenerative development. The podcast discusses how investments in natural capital can help LDCs reach their economic and development goals; and which investors, investment strategies and transactions are more likely to succeed in these countries.
