Date and Time

Meeting
Eleventh meeting of the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (COP 11)

Regional Conservation Trust Funds have become increasingly important in delivering finance for nature conservation on a transnational scale over the past years. They offer unique opportunities concerning access to finance, efficiency gains and knowledge management for Protected Areas, particularly in developing countries. They also imply a series of additional and distinct challenges concerning political, operational and legal aspects compared to single-country funds. The Conservation Finance Alliance (CFA) has prepared an overview of insights and perspectives that will be presented and discussed in the session. The analysis has been executed by KfW Entwicklungsbank on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
