Description:

This Webinar was the next in a series hosted by the Conservation Finance Forum, part of the Program on Conservation Innovation at Harvard Forest, with assistance from the Government Innovators Network. This Webinar series highlights several topics of keen interest to the U.S. and international conservation communities.

Leigh Youngblood, an expert on aggregation, and Bob Bendick, who has recently co-authored a landmark report on mitigation, discussed mitigation and aggregation as rapidly evolving methods for financing the conservation of land and biodiversity habitat. Both strategies were also considered in a presentation by a team from the Harvard Forest on the Wildlands and Woodlands Vision for New England on October 3 at the 2010 Land Trust Rally.
