Economics for Environmental Leadership

Conservation Strategy Fund gives conservation professionals economic knowledge and skills that are key for success in protecting the environment. Our unique Economics for Environmental Leadership capacity building program focuses on conservation economics, drawing on the fields of environmental economics, natural resource economics, agricultural economics, development economics and behavioral economics to advance conservation goals in practical, strategic ways. This approach is crucial at a time when global-scale environmental changes are being driven by a diversity of economic factors, and when conservation leaders are striving to harness opportunities to reward the preservation of ecosystem services.

Capacitación en Negociación Ambiental

Un entrenamiento para profesionales decisores en conservación y manejo de recursos naturales

América Latina se encuentra envuelta en una creciente conflictividad socio-ambiental, y en muchos casos las instituciones públicas y los actores sociales tienen capacidades limitadas para responder de forma adecuada y efectiva a los conflictos.

Tomando en cuenta esa realidad, Conservación Estratégica, con la colaboración de la Fundación Futuro Latinoamericano y el auspicio de la Fundación Gordon y Betty Moore, convoca a representantes de organizaciones de conservación, comunidades locales, y de entidades públicas a un Curso de Capacitación en Negociación Ambiental, a llevarse a cabo del 17 al 22 de agosto del presente año.

Decision-makers Workshop: Developing Economic Analysis Capacity for the Conservation of the Southern Tropical Andes

This Project was launched with a workshop aimed at decision-makers from Bolivia and Peru, held in August 2009 in Lima. The purpose of this workshop was to familiarize representatives from both countries with the tools that economic analysis provides to conservation practice, and to get their feedback on economic research priorities for their on-the-ground conservation programs in southeastern Peru and northern Bolivia. Participants included representatives from government, NGOs and cooperation agencies in both countries.
