AVPN        WCS

AVPN’s Friday sessions are casual get-togethers once a month for our community and friends, whereby we choose a topic of interest, and have a key speaker start the conversation off.

Speakers:

Todd Stevens, London Davies and Colin Poole, Wildlife Conservation Society (New York and Singapore)  

Impact investing has become a large and growing asset class that has the potential to change both the way companies do business and the way financial institutions and individuals invest. However, to date, very few impact investors have engaged in businesses that help to solve environmental conservation problems, and this is a serious missed opportunity considering the current biodiversity crisis in Asia as well as globally.

The Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), the world’s leading field-based conservation organization, is looking forward to introducing the Conservation Enterprise Development Program, a new program which leverages market-based forces and impact investing to solve conservation problems and simultaneously assist some of the most remote and marginalized rural communities across the developing world in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
