CLIMATE CHANGE 

LOSS AND DAMAGE RESPONSE FUND

With climate change causing loss and damage around the world, the Loss and Damage Response Fund mandated by the United Nations Convention on Climate Change intends to provide financial relief to the most vulnerable nations.

 

But what should be the focus of the fund and how could it be capitalised?  We are helping structure the Loss and Damage Fund.  

BIODIVERSITY

GLOBAL ECOSYSTEMS ATLAS

The recently adopted Global Biodiversity Framework (GBF) is a landmark agreement with concrete goals, targets and indicators to halt and reverse the loss of biodiversity and the services nature provides to all of us. 

 

But how can progress be monitored?  We are supporting a global collaboration to create the world's first Global Ecosystems Atlas.

ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY

INNOVATIVE

WASTE MANAGEMENT

Mountains of waste are growing above ground, under-ground and in the oceans.  The amount of household, industrial and e-waste we generate every single day is unbelievable.  

Traditional approaches are not solving the problem. We are supporting the up-take of new technologies that have the potential to transform waste management.

ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

IFF is a Swiss foundation established by Robert R. Filipp in 2011.  Our mission is to help governments, communities and organisations design, structure and implement innovative finance for sustainable development.

 

The idea for the IFF came about as a result of the success our Founder had with innovative financing for global health, which generated hundreds of millions of dollars for life-saving treatments.  IFF is about complementing and expanding this experience for the benefit of all.

We have a flexible policy on how we engage with projects.  Most frequently, organisations approach us to help them design, structure and implement innovative finance solutions to advance their missions.  

 

Once we accept a project, we deploy expertise, networks and resources, including our Advisory Board and other world-class talent as needed.

 Let's work together.
