Conserving Forest and Farmlands Facing Climate Uncertainty With Market-Based Approaches and Conservation Finance

This poster will cover the mechanics of executing market-based conservation strategies to conserve and protect working forests and farmlands in an era of climate uncertainty. It includes our lesson learned from our research in the Puget Sound. Lessons learned include our work around quantification of ecosystem services, utilizing market-based tools in the region, emerging voluntary carbon offset markets, ensuring compatibility of “competing” conservation programs and establishing markets for ecosystem services payments. Additionally we explore regulatory vs. voluntary and public vs. private capital for land conservation to implement ecosystem recovery and plan for climate uncertainty in the Puget Sound.
