Landscape Resilience Fund (LRF)

Financing climate adaptation for people and nature

The Landscape Resilience Fund (LRF) is an impact-driven, independent foundation that mobilizes private and public climate finance for vulnerable smallholders and landscapes. The LRF was co-developed by South Pole and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to create a scalable way to support meaningful climate adaptation in rural landscapes.

With the support of the Global Environment Facility and the commitment of CHANEL as anchor investor, the fund is now rallying more institutions to invest in a resilient future.

Mission

The mission of the LRF is to enable the most vulnerable people in rural landscapes to effectively adapt to climate change.

Despite the intensifying frequency and impact of physical climate risks, only a fraction of climate finance goes towards climate adaptation – and virtually none of it comes from the private sector, a key problem that the Landscape Resilience Fund seeks to tackle.
