Survey of Protected Area Finance Capacity Needs

This survey is designed to better understand the knowledge and capacity development needs of the broad conservation community with regards to protected area finance. The results will help to inform the work of the Conservation Finance Alliance Working Group on Protected Areas Finance, and through the CFA, it will be used to inform the wider community of protected area finance practitioners.

Protected area finance may be defined as “the ability to secure stable and sufficient long-term financial resources, and to allocate them in a timely manner and appropriate form, to cover the full costs of protected areas (direct and indirect) and to ensure that PAs are managed effectively and efficiently” (Convention on Biological Diversity, 2005).

The survey is designed for conservation practitioners that work in protected areas or on protected area issues. It should take approximately 15 minutes to complete and the information you provide will be held in strict confidence. Only aggregate results will be shared.

The survey is available in three languages: English, French, and Spanish. We would greatly appreciate your participation. Please use the buttons below or visit the CFA site to proceed to the survey in your preferred language.
