Nature Fund Chile: The importance of the new collaborative financing to protect our natural heritage
The creation of the Chile Nature Fund opens up numerous opportunities for collaborative financing of conservation initiatives. An opportunity that arose after a public-private effort of more than four years of work, which aims to mobilize and channel resources for large-scale nature conservation in Chile.
