Building strategic focus in a conservation trust fund : Notes sur les enseignements du fem (French)

The Global Environment Facility (GEF) recently completed an evaluation of "Experience with Conservation Trust Funds." The evaluation sought to determine the extent to which potential advantages of trust funds have been realized, how concerns expressed about them have been addressed, what conditions are necessary for funds to function effectively, and what can be said about their impact to date on biodiversity conservation. The evaluation found that the most successful trust funds were more than just financial mechanisms. They were able to act as independent organization to influence their environment to build effective, responsive, and focused programs. This Note draws on the findings and conclusions of this evaluation. It emphasizes the importance of concentrating trust fund programs on a manageable set of activities. Lessons learned by conservation trust funds in developing a focus in the face of competing demands for their resources will prove useful to other trust funds.
