Over the last decade, this course has become recognized as the premier applied economics training event for conservation professionals from around the world. During the comprehensive two-week session, participants learn to use economics to be more strategic and successful in their conservation work, and experience a transformational shift in how they view environmental issues. The course covers economic fundamentals, natural resource and environmental economics, communication and negotiation techniques, and hands-on experience with cost-benefit analysis.
Two scholarships are currently available for participants from Latin America - one for an individual from Peru working in conservation and another for anyone from Latin America who works specifically in wildlife conservation. To be considered for these scholarships, all you need to do is apply to the course!
