Examples of this pattern in action:
The Ecotrust Natural Capital Fund
To spur the creation of the necessary institutional capacity for the development of the conservation economy, Ecotrust has created the Natural Capital Fund. The Fund makes investments in key sectors, businesses and projects which significantly enhance the capacity for appropriate development and conservation in the coastal temperate rain forest region. The Fund is intended to serve as a catalyst, leveraging other investments through partnerships, joint ventures and other collaborations. As the ventures mature and are able to access other sources of funds, such as bank financing, the Fund investment will be recovered and redeployed.
