From April 18th to 20th in Bogotá, Colombia, CSF held a course on "Payments for Ecosystem Services (PES) and their implementation in protected areas". More than 40 officials from National Natural Parks of Colombia (PNNC), from different regions of Colombia, participated in the course, acquiring the necessary knowledge to enable them to implement PES mechanisms in the country's protected areas.

Alumni Spotlight: Pursuing Higher Education

CSF is proud to have trained nearly 3000 professionals around the world through our capacity-building programs. Our alumni are academics, government officials, biologists, lawyers, park rangers, NGO program officers, and others - all working to find solutions to environmental problems that work for people and nature. The economic tools CSF offers are often only one piece of the puzzle for these dedicated conservationists.

Several of our alumni have recently been accepted to prestigious programs and top universities. We would like to take this opportunity to recognize their achievements, and wish them the best of luck in their next step as growing leaders.

Along with the Ucayali and Madre de Dios rivers, it is one of the main tributaries of the Amazon basin in Peru.
