What is the Biodiversity Finance Accelerator (BioFA)?

BioFA mobilises biodiversity investments and scales biodiversity-positive entrepreneurship, thus contributing to a sustainable use, conservation and restoration of ecosystems in Malawi and Zambia. Biodiversity-positive micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) are supported to access finance and invest into growth while financial institutions and other ecosystem players are trained in conservation finance to co-create innovative financing instruments for biodiversity MSMEs.

This project is part of the International Climate Initiative (IKI). The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) supports this initiative on the basis of a decision adopted by the German Bundestag. Please refer to the IKI webpage for further information:Β 

What are biodiversity-positive enterprises?

Biodiversity-positive enterprises have developed business models which from the outset are designed to conserve and restore ecosystems and thus create positive biodiversity impacts.
These business models focus on:

  • Sustainable agriculture
  • Ecotourism
  • Reforestation
  • Invasive species management
  • Provision of resource alternatives
  • Biodiversity-based products

Please find more information on the business models of newly selected biodiversity-positive enterprises for the BioFA business acceleration programme under the News section!
