Since 2006, the ICCF has been recognized as the leading organizer of relationships between U.S. policymakers, conservationists, and business leaders. We work hard to maintain a working structure that helps policymakers react to international ecosystem challenges and make informed decisions in allocating resources.
INTEGRATING ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP& GOOD NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT INTO PRIVATE-SECTOR INVESTMENT
For many in the developing world, their foremost concern is day-to-day survival. When people are desperate, they resort to desperate measures, often destroying the very natural resources on which they depend. Market-based conservation solutions are essential to ensure that natural resources are used in a manner that allows people to benefit from these resources while also providing them with incentive to ensure their long-term viability.
Our Congressional Briefing Series educates policymakers using good science and models of public-private partnerships that invest in protecting biodiversity and natural resources. Over the years our briefings have covered a wide variety of global initiatives, from cutting-edge corporate social responsibility practices to innovative on-the-ground conservation programs.
