Thank you for visiting the Conservation Finance Forum's website. We hope you visit often. This site features information resources that bring new light to the practice of conservation finance and the education of conservation financiers. It does so through feature articles as well as expanding set of links to the following resource groups and interactive forums, including:
The key focus of the website is on techniques and practices that are innovative, and that bring innovative twists to tried and true conservation finance practices. We will be looking for ideas that are novel, significant, measurably effective, transferable and have an ability, or at least the potential, to endure.
The website is still in its formative stages. We do now, and will continue in the future to value your ideas about how to present this information in the most practical and accessible format. And we are always happy to hear news you have to share about newly available resources and innovations in the field of conservation finance that merit the attention of the community-of-practice associated with the Conservation Finance Forum.
The Program on Conservation Innovation at the Harvard Forest, Harvard University, along with the Conservation Finance Forum, hosted an expert chat on May 27, 2010 featuring the newly released study on "Wildlands and Woodlands: A Vision for the New England Landscape." David Foster, the Director of the Harvard Forest and the study's lead author, was on hand to discuss the Wildlands and Woodlands vision and science-based overview of the region. David's discussion was introduced with comments made by Theodore Roosevelt IV at the study's release event on May 19, 2010 on the campus of Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Jim Levitt, the session's moderator and a study co-author, was also on hand to comment on the conservation finance and landscape-scale conservation concepts relevant to W&W.
