Forests as Capital: International Society of Tropical Foresters Annual Conference in New Haven
Date:1/29/2014

The Yale Chapter of the International Society of Tropical Foresters (ISTF) will host its 20th annual conference at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (F&ES) in New Haven, Conn. from Jan. 30 to Feb. 1.

The conference, "Forests as Capital: Financial Mechanisms for Tropical Forest Conservation," will explore conservation models that employ both the capital approach (top-down) and local approach (bottom up) to attract financing and generate sustainable revenues from forest resources.

The three-day event, held at Kroon Hall, will bring together representatives from international organizations, governments, financial institutions, and nonprofit groups with the common mission of building markets for conserving tropical forests.

"The visiting experts in the field of finance for tropical conservation will address crucial questions, including what tools are available, where have they been implemented, and how can they be accessed by communities and conservationists," said Matthew Bare M.F.S. '14, ISTF Chapter President.

The conference will also award the first-ever ISTF Innovation Prize for outstanding ideas in forest conservation. The $5,000 prize is sponsored by the Andrew Sabin Family Foundation and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
