Welcome to the
Conservation Finance Innovation Network

Thank you for visiting the Conservation Finance Innovation Network's website. We hope you visit often. This site features information resources that bring new light to the practice of conservation finance and the education of conservation financiers. It does so through feature articles as well as expanding set of links to to the following resource groups and interactive forums, including:

The key focus of the website is on techniques and practices that are innovative, and that bring innovative twists to tried and true conservation finance practices.  We will be looking for ideas that are novel, significant, measurably effective, transferable and have an ability, or at least the potential, to endure.

The website is still in its formatives stages. We do now, and will continue in the future to value your ideas about how to present this information in the most practical and accessible format.  And we are always happy to hear news you have to share about newly available resources and innovations in the field of conservation finance that merit the attention of the community-of-practice associated with the Conservation Finance Innovation Network.
