The report describes opportunities for private finance to support investment in Scotland's nature and the benefits it provides. To catalyse this investment, it recommends that project developers explore the potential for their projects to generate net positive cashflows and then match revenue streams with possible financing structures. It highlights actions that could support this type of investment. The report provides the basis for a pilot project that NatureScot is leading, with the Tweed Forum, to find ways for regional partnerships to facilitate investment in natural capital.
