From Walden to Wall Street: Frontiers of Conservation Finance

Can the conservation community come up with new methods for financing that will fill this gap, especially for high-priority land conservation needs? "From Walden to Wall Street" brings together the experience of more than a dozen pioneering conservation finance practitioners to address the this question, and the answer is quite possibly “yes,” according to editor James N. Levitt. Some of the groundbreaking ideas discussed in this volume include mainstreaming environmental markets; proven methods that have caused a four-fold increase in local government ballot measures for land conservation; and the powerful potential of debt markets, convertible tax-exempt financing, emerging tax benefits, and private equity markets for conservation organizations with the institutional capacity to appropriately access them.
