Unlocking Tailormade Finance Solutions for Nature.

Designed for impact.
Built for scale.

In 50 years, the world has lost two thirds of its wildlife. Significant finance is needed globally to support conservation impact in real places, with real people.

Who we are?

We unlock critical finance for nature. We find the right finance solutions, for the right places, with the right people to achieve impact at scale.

The Sustainable Finance Coalition (the Coalition) finds, designs and mobilises tailormade finance solutions for nature. We are a driving force for the incubation and implementation of finance solutions at their point of impact ensuring effective and enduring naturescapes across Africa.

Our model

How do we achieve impact at scale?

If we grow finance solutions for nature champions, they will be enabled to secure and manage their unique resources, and biodiversity and people will flourish.

The Coalition undertakes a systemic and collaborative approach to financing conservation, grounded in our values and commitments to find, design and mobilise sustainable finance for conservation and social impact.

What are our impacts and targets?

If we are to achieve global commitments for 2030, together we need to be bold. The Coalition understands that through collective action we can achieve environmental, social and economic impact.

Our work focusses on large high-biodiversity value contiguous landscapes and seascapes in Africa. Our impact covers 13 countries, with 14 finance solutions in our inventory.
