As with energy and carbon, integrating climate risk strands some assets and makes others financially more attractive. NatureFinance has developed a three-level approach: first, a global modelling exercise which provides key data on how it will impact food systems; second, a deep dive in Brazil which showcases how this will impact a precise jurisdiction, and the role of policy intervention; third, insights on Brazilian consumer behaviour and how to nudge it towards sustainable choices. This mosaic approach can be replicated in other regions and scaled globally in future phases of work.
