The IPG Handbook on Environmental Funds

Environmental funds are innovative financing mechanisms that cover the recurrent costs of parks and protected areas, support the conservation of biodiversity, promote the sustainable use of natural resources such as forests and/or strengthen local institutions engaged in conservation and sustainable development. They include trust funds established by special legislation, foundations, common law trusts, and nonprofit corporations. Most environmental funds include representatives from both the host government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) on their governing boards. With a few exceptions, most “green funds,” the focus of this handbook, are located in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and Latin America and the Caribbean.
