Report on the Woodlands and Wildlands Conservation Finance Roundtable

In April 2006, the Program on Conservation Innovation at the Harvard Forest convened more than three dozen experts in conservation finance from around the nation to consider innovative mechanisms for financing the Wildlands and Woodlands vision - a vision first articulated by David Foster and his colleagues in 2005.

The two-day working session, held at the Harvard University Center for the Environment in Cambridge, MA, yielded several highly inventive approaches to the challenge. You can download the Report on the W+W Conservation Finance Roundtable here.

In 2008 Foster and the Wildlands and Woodlands team met again to review the progress of their 2005 vision. They produced a follow-up report to track the developments since their original report.
