Models for Funder-Community Relationships: Grassroots-Led Conservation Strategies

Local communities are on the front lines of conserving the world’s resources. Meanwhile, they have little to no access to the financial resources they need to successfully defend and manage their natural environments. Experienced practitioners of the Greengrants Alliance Funds such as Samdhana Institute and the Center for Socio-Environmental Fund CASA will share successful, locally-based ecological and social justice support funds that effectively channel appropriate resources directly to local conservation leaders.

Key questions include:

The Role of Partnerships and Size in Scaling Up Marine Protection Efforts Across the Globe

The past two decades have seen both an increase in the area of the world’s ocean under protection and a trend toward the establishment of large-scale and partnership-driven marine protected areas (MPAs). Recent calls from the international marine conservation community recommend a target of protecting at least 10% of all of the world’s marine and coastal ecoregions by 2020. The international community also notes that with only approximately 1% of the world’s oceans currently protected, effective partnerships and large-scale MPAs will both play a critical role to achieve this target.
