Project Finance for Permanence: Key Outcomes and Lessons Learned

Project Finance for Permanence (PFP) is an innovative approach to permanent and full funding of conservation areas. This report includes lessons learned from completed PFP initiatives and several that are in progress. It also assesses key outcomes to date from the largest PFP, called ARPA for Life, and several other PFPs. The report is based on interviews done in July 2015 with funders, NGO representatives, government officials and others who have played a role in PFPs.
