1207- CFA (Conservation Finance Alliance): Conservation finance for protected areas: gaps, comparative analysis and alternatives in a dynamic debate
Protected Planet Pavillon 08:30-10:30
The resilience of conservation initiatives, and their results and impact, depends in great measure on the availability and use of funding. In addition to government funding and revenues, there is often a gap, either for capital or recurrent expenditure, or to invest in revenue generation or benefit flows. The development of innovative financial arrangements that will implement and sustain conservation efforts over time, including best practices of governance, accountability and financial management, is a key aspect to address degradation of nature.
This event will propose the debate on the comparative advantages of Conservation Trust Funds and projects to sustainably finance Protected Areas and PAs Systems around the globe. There will be a case presentation and a session for dynamic debate.
