PANELIST NAMES:

Margaret Bowman

This panel will focus on technological and financial innovations that are accelerating investment in conservation through improved measurement of conservation outcomes. These approaches can convince governments to take on new investments that are viewed as “risky” by allowing them to pay for outcomes, as well as to enable private ecosystem services markets and convince investors that environmental returns on investments are real. This panel highlights a number of financial and technology solutions from Quantified Ventures, The Freshwater Trust, Chesapeake Conservancy, and Upstream that are being developed that help maximize the effectiveness of conservation projects by bringing rigor to evaluating and learning from these projects regarding performance and impact.
