The ICCF Conservation Council: Providing Knowledge and Expertise

The ICCF Conservation Council plays a key role by partnering with government on conservation and development initiatives. Council members represent global businesses, NGOs, and bilateral and multilateral development organizations. These organizations possess very diverse experience: some offering the latest science, others sharing practical know-how to build community-based conservation projects through public-private partnerships. But, all offer unique perspectives and share a common desire to implement conservation projects safeguarding wildlife and biodiversity, protecting and restoring habitats, and generating economic opportunities and social benefits for surrounding communities who are necessarily the long-term stewards of local natural resources.
