Abstract: Cost analyses and risk assessments in the Anthropocene era need to differ from those of the past. Future developments now are determined byopportunity costs and planetary risks. We provide a first comprehensive systematization that can serve as a template for blended finance and blendedsecuritization in order to finance our global commons. We show that financing our future requires multiple new financial engineering techniques thatbuild upon the experiences of the private sector, but need to be adapted to meet the criteria of force majeure and planetary risks.
