Conservation isn’t free

Conservation finance is a key strategy for achieving the commitments of the Global Biodiversity Framework, as well as other American, Canadian and transboundary climate change, biodiversity and conservation agreements. Many financing options are being discussed and developed and frequently, Indigenous Peoples are advanced as the leaders that will implement these finance mechanisms. “Indigenous-led” is a common refrain in conservation financing conversations, however, many Tribes require more information about how these options benefit them and support cultural sustainability. That’s why Gwen recently attended a conservation finance workshop hosted by the Canadian Council on Ecological Areas (CCEA).

As leading practitioners in the field, we’re keeping up with the latest trends so we’re well-positioned to bring them to you at the IEI and at other events to showcase expanding Indigenous leadership in conservation and sustainable finance.
