FMO recently partnered with WWF, SNV and Climate Fund Managers in order to manage the Dutch Fund for Climate and Development from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The fund seeks to improve the wellbeing, economic prospects, and livelihoods of vulnerable groups and enhance the health of critical ecosystems, from river basins to tropical rainforests, marshland, and mangroves. The consortium’s activities will also help protect communities and cities from the increasing frequency of extreme weather events and benefit weakening biodiversity in areas that provide people with water, food, medicine, and economic opportunity.
In 2020, several EDFI teamed up to develop a new Joint Impact Model in order to harmonize the way in wich outcomes of responsible investments are measured. The goal is to provide to DFIs and Impact Investors a standardize series of measurent tools for absolute GHG emissions and direct/indirect jobs to assess outcomes across different portfolio of investments.
