Land Conservation Working Group

The Land Conservation Working Group was convened in 2012 to develop a set of land conservation metrics. The IRIS initiative collaborated with the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and Manta Consulting Inc . to convene experts spanning land conservation practitioners, land conservation investment managers, impact investors, and others to offer input and advice related to the identification and formulation of the metrics.
