Hank Paulson’s COP 15 Keynote
Paulson Institute’s Chairman and Founder Hank Paulson delivers remarks on the Paulson Institute’s contributions to the negotiations. Hank highlights four key takeaways from Financing Nature:
- Preventing environmental damage is far cheaper than cleaning it up afterward.
- We are losing biodiversity rapidly because political and economic systems and financial markets do not properly account for nature’s services.
- The biodiversity financing gap is about $711 billion over the next ten years.
- Biodiversity loss and climate change are twin crises that must be addressed simultaneously.
