The Blue Solutions Initiative is currently designing a training course on conservation finance in cooperation with the Conservation Strategy Fund. From October 11 to 12, 2017, a test run of the newly developed course took place in Frankfurt, Germany. Participants from Freshfields, GIZ, GRID-Arendal and IUCN – among them experts in conservation finance and planning – learned about different mechanisms to finance biodiversity management activities. They discussed these mechanisms based on exercises and provided useful feedback, which will be reflected in an adapted version of the training course.
