Through the SVP, a methodology created by Pro Natura with the recognition of IFC (International Finance Corporation) that foresees the promotion of sustainable, inclusive, green and long-term development in vulnerable regions, under the influence of large extractive.
According to the SVP methodology, our goals are to leverage the efforts already existing in the territory and multiply its positive results through strategic alliances and investment attraction.
The SVP methodology involves (i) promoting participatory processes with local actors as protagonists in their development and (ii) fostering economic diversification in the target region.
Much of the historical and forthcoming economic growth in emerging markets has been driven by large-scale projects, especially in extractive and infrastructure sectors. While this development model has increased GDP, it has caused also ecological damage, social unrest and economic concentration at the local and regional level.
The SVP aims at taking advantage of large-scale investments to generate and share value with the communities at the bottom of the pyramid.
Local communities at center of participatory consultation, design and execution process, creating legitimacy in all actions carried out in the territory.
Proliferation of climate-friendly social ventures with large-scale potential and demonstrable regional economic benefit.
Blended finance structure leveraging philanthropic and impact investment capital to exponentially increase social, environmental and financial returns using a systemic approach.
Integration of pubic, private and civil input, with a focus on inclusion and empowerment of vulnerable groups (i.e. women, youth, indigenous and traditional communities).
