The Global Reach of Land Trust Organizations
This paper is a summary of the author’s reflections gained from the many interactions he has had over the past 18 months with land trust practitioners, academics and government agency leaders on several continents. His purpose in connecting with experienced land conservation professionals all over the world was to try to better understand the scale and scope of activities undertaken by land conservation NGOs internationally. The author is fortunate to have had the opportunity to engage with a truly responsive, insightful and helpful network of people studying and working for such organizations. This investigation and research was supported by author’s Kingsbury Browne Fellowship at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy.
