Key Words: biodiversity conservation, environmental markets, conservation finance
The mission of the Linden Trust for Conservation is to help stabilize the Earth's biodiversity and ecological processes for the benefit of humanity. The Trust pursues this mission by making grants to support a few key initiatives.
The interests of the Linden Trust for Conservation include the following:
Grant Programs for Agriculture, Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources
1 -- Environmental Markets. This program funds a small number of initiatives that use market-based approaches to address environmental problems that have not responded well to traditional approaches. Current examples include grants to promote carbon markets and pollution markets.
2 -- Conservation Finance. Linden Trust works with partner organizations -- including trusts, corporations, and conservation NGOs -- to raise funds for ecologically important landscapes at the scale of countries and ecosystems.
3 -- Institutions. The Trust provides financial support to institutions whose missions align with those at Linden.
Most grant recipients are large and well-established nonprofit organizations for conservation and natural resources policy – based mainly in the USA, with international interests.
The main grants are US$500 thousand and more for multi-year periods.
