Conservation finance strategies that seek positive environmental and social outcomes while generating returns for private investors are a potential game-changer for sustainability and biodiversity conservation. Global initiatives funded by private sector dollars are already being deployed. Despite great potential, however, financial, social, and environmental challenges and uncertainties remain. This conference brings together communities of practice and scholarship to discuss the opportunities, challenges, and needs related to private investing in conservation and is open to the public.
