Conservation Finance: New White PaperApril 16, 2020
The Conservation Finance Alliance recently published a white paper ‘Conservation Finance: A Framework’ to clarify the definition and role of conservation finance. It shows how important conservation finance mechanisms and strategies are for addressing the underlying causes of nature loss as well as contributing to increasing sustainable funding flows to nature conservation.
This white paper, supported by the French Facility for Global Environment (FFEM) and MAVA, is intended to improve understanding of the opportunities and challenges posed by the field of conservation finance. The paper emphasizes a holistic approach to conservation finance and seeks to support a more harmonized comprehension going forward. Secondly, the white paper provides several conceptual frameworks to facilitate an understanding of the various concepts associated with conservation finance. Finally, the white paper presents a taxonomy of conservation finance strategies and mechanisms.
