The Natural Capital Finance Alliance (NCFA) is seeking to contract one or several entities to implement part of its Advancing Environmental Risk Management (AERM) project. This pioneering project will work closely with financial institutions in Colombia, Peru and South Africa to enable these institutions to identify, measure and integrate natural capital-related risks in their existing risk management processes. The AERM project is funded by the Swiss Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO) and the MAVA foundation.

Core deliverables

  • Develop a replicable process for financial institutions to follow for undertaking a rapid natural capital risk appraisal, based on lessons learned from implementation with the participating financial institutions.
  • Develop and implement one case study of quantitative natural capital risk measurement and integration for each of the financial institutions participating in the project (4 – 7 financial institutions).
  • Narrative report outlining the methods used, outcomes, and recommendations on process for integrating natural capital risk consideration into existing risk management processes.
  • Participation in outreach activities.

Proposal submission deadline: 17.00 pm GMT 19 January 2018.

The NCFA is a collaboration with the finance sector to lead the integration of natural capital considerations into financial decision-making. The NCFA is jointly managed by UN Environment’s Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) and the Global Canopy Programme.
