The reasons for land conservation are innumerable. And throughout this conference, we’re pushing ourselves to think bigger about who gets included and benefits from this work. Financing is and will remain one of the greatest challenges to getting the work done. This session will run through the range of innovative—or just plain effective—funding and financing tools and strategies, including examples of how they have been put into practice. The session attempts to demystify conservation finance and provides attendees with a practical resource library of toolkits to continue their exploration.
