1. Introduction to Survey

The study is concerned with increasing funding for nature conservation and development in southern Africa. It is focuses on the question of whether blended finance tools can help to increase the scale of investment to terrestrial community-based conservation (whether wildlife, forestry or other).

The output from the research will be a publicly-available inventory of blended investment options for community-based conservation. This will include avenues for non-tourism revenue streams, with perspectives on which avenues stakeholders see as most desirable according to their own interests and identified risks.

Responses are sought from a wide range of stakeholders.
The survey will take around 10-15 minutes to complete, and responses are appreciated by 17 July 2020.
To thank respondents for their contributions, the researcher will donate ZAR 20 to the Peace Parks Foundation for every (validated) survey completed, up to a maximum of ZAR 2,000.
Data protection and confidentiality
Your name and organisation will be kept confidential; they are used for validation of the survey only. Your email address will be used only to send you the results after completion of the study, unless you consent to a follow-up interview.
