Kinship Regional Conservation Workshop – Mexico 2018

Deadline: September 9, 2018

Applications are open for the Kinship Regional Conservation Workshop – Mexico 2018. Targeting the early-career professional, regional workshops are designed to advance the development of market-based tools in areas of the world where there is an identified training need and such approaches remain underutilized.

During this five-day workshop, participants will attend lectures, participate in discussions, and take an all-day field trip to see incentive-based conservation projects in action. This is a unique opportunity for early-career Mexican conservationists to learn about experiences of incentive-based conservation from around the world.

  5. Financial tools: how Mexico can use global markets for local conservation benefits
  6. Bringing it together: the future of incentive-based conservation in Mexico
