I collaborate with ACS on a number of projects trying to link biodiversity conservation and economic incentives. I think that ACS has a raft of innovative ideas which could lead to real change in how we approach the protection of nature. The real challenge for the organization will be building these ideas into workable funded projects.
The principals in ACS bring a unique blend of academic rigor and marketplace savvy to conservation issues. Their ideas are innovative and cutting edge. With a focus internationally as well as the U.S., they are well-respected by their peers working in conservation.
ACS is a pioneering NGO doing interesting and valuable work. They make a difference very economically. They are excellent shepards of the environment and low income people who are the most effected by environmental programs.
ACS is a true leader in the movement to develop and implement innovative financing schemes to enhance conservation at the landscape scale. A fantastic partner to work with!
