Scaling up Conservation Finance: Takeaways and Videos from the Practitioners WorkshopMay 12, 2014
The field of conservation finance is at an inflection point. There is a long and distinguished list of conservation finance deals that have delivered important conservation benefits. As the field moves to the next stage, it will need to migrate beyond donor-driven financing to commercial, investor-driven vehicles. It will need to move from one-off transactions towards repeatable and scalable models of investing.
From its roots in NGOs, land trusts, and foundation and donor capital, we see growing interest conservation finance from institutional investors and intermediaries. These new investable transactions require an alignment of interests of buyers, regulators, NGOs, industry, and specific types of investors.
