Building Forest Health and Resilience through Investment: Current and Future Strategies

Over the course of the webinar, Leigh Madeira (Blue Forest Conservation) and Nathalie Woolworth (U.S. Forest Service) will provide invaluable insight from the field on current and prospective investment strategies aimed at growing the health and resilience of forests – an especially relevant topic today. Leigh will kick off the webinar featuring the Forest Resilience Bond (FRB), an innovative financing mechanism that serves as a public-private partnership to enhance forest restoration. She will also discuss the exciting recent launch of the FRB’s pilot project, touching on the development process and goals of the pilot. Nathalie will then speak to her perspective from the U.S. Forest Service on how to apply similar investment strategies in other contexts, and more generally, what the future of financing forest health may look like.
