Training with Conservation Strategy Fund

Our unique capacity building program draws on multiple economic disciplines to give conservation professionals knowledge and skills that are key for success in protecting the environment.

“This training is one of the greatest ideas in community-based conservation. It has empowered me as a key decision maker in a conservation organization to have a not just a voice, but a voice of reason. This is exactly what I needed, and now I have it, thanks to CSF.”
