This report describes the emerging Environmental Impact Investing market, a potential source of funding at the scale required to effectively protect global biodiversity. It illustrates how use of the Open Standards builds the project management and impact measurement skills needed to access this market. It also outlines the IRIS Metrics, which provide an industry standard for reporting the impact of projects, helping investors to compare performance across different organisations.
Here is the link to the document, which is part of a comprehensive set of documents penned by Annette Stewart as part of her 2016 Fulbright Scholarship. Also see below the Roadmap, from which the full set of reports can be accessed.
