National parks and other important conservation areas face mounting financial pressures, constrained donor funding and intensifying demands to prove their economic and social case.
We work with government protected area agencies, private landowners and communities to build and implement new business plans that optimize economic development potential, engage key stakeholders and increase wider political support for conservation.
We use our bespoke Conservation Capital processes and tools to:
Build commercial revenues for conservation areas
Optimize underlying conservation management strategies (and associated costs)
Engage key stakeholders, such as local communities and governments
Develop both commercial and donor funding strategies to finance associated capital needs
Design optimum corporate and governance structures to support all of the above
National Parks and Reserves
Supporting government protected area agencies to develop business and management plans for national parks and other public conservation areas.
