A holistic approach

Place-based conservation brings together the ecological, financial, and organizational measures needed for long-term conservation.

Multiple benefits

PFP brings a large block of outside funding into a single closing and organizes the necessary parties and draw out new resources and commitments.

Over the past several decades, but in particular in recent years, the practice of conservation has increasingly adopted business-based and financial approaches. Among these is the use of project-finance techniques to mobilize the resources, institutional commitments, and other conditions needed for successful long-term  conservation. This approach, here referred to as project finance for permanence (PFP), is the subject of this report.
