Who pays for nature? And who gets to benefit?
In this episode, we’ll look at the economic aspects of conservation. How do we value nature, and how should we be valuing it? We’ll also look at financing conservation and explore new and innovative ways that might free up more capital and create a sustainable funding pipeline.
About Africa Forward: Season 2: Introducing Season 2 of Africa Forward, a podcast supported by the African Wildlife Foundation and produced by FP Studios. In this season, host Carol Pineau explores green infrastructure, Africa’s tremendous biodiversity, and how African-led conservation may not only help save endangered species but also the planet. The show will also challenge the Western model of conservation. That system, which was started under colonialism, protected nature by walling it off from people. It made it so that Africans, who for millennia had coexisted—and protected—nature could no longer access their own traditional lands. Get ready for a tour of the continent, seeing how African-led conservation is changing the way Africa sees its biodiversity—not just protecting it but sustainably using it to create a biodiverse economy that can be a driver of social and economic development.

Heat of the Moment
The climate change crisis can feel so formidable, so daunting, that instead of mobilizing people to action, it engenders paralysis. What could we mortals possibly do to prevent the calamity? A fair bit, it turns out. On Heat of the Moment, a 10-part podcast by FP Studios, in partnership with the Climate Investment Funds, we focus on ordinary people across the globe who have found ways to fight back. Hosted by CNN contributor John D. Sutter, Heat of the Moment tells the stories of the people on the front lines of the fight against climate change. The Climate Investment Funds is a nonpartisan champion of climate action.
