The Land Use Finance Impact Hub and its Positive Impact Indicators Directory - launched by UN Environment Programme (UNEP) Climate Finance Unit and the UNEP-World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) - has been developed with and for impact funds and sustainably focused financial institutions, providing a collection of tools and guidance to strengthen environmental and social frameworks for sustainable land use investing.
The Impact Hub will host multiple expert discussions, information briefs that educate decision-makers about various environmental and social frameworks and relevant external resources. The Impact Hub's Positive Impact Indicators Directory is a harmonized shortlist o key performance indicators, designed to encompass fundamental aspects of sustainable land use investment. It aims to help end-users, including impact funds, asset managers and debt managers to identify and measure how land use investments generate positive environmental and social impacts. The Directory also allows users to see how the proposed indicators link to global goals, enabling financial institutions to track their positive environmental and social impacts.
