I am very excited to be participating in “Collaborating for Conservation – Yale Conservation Finance Camp 2012” starting on Monday, June 4th. This training is pivotal for several of the ideas currently in concept stage that may provide market-based approaches to making coral reef restoration financially sustainable. I wanted to share the problem statement (Developing Sustainable Funding Strategies for Coral Restoration_Brett Howell Yale Conservation Finance Camp 2012) that I developed for the training. Suggestions on how to solve the challenges presented in the problem statement would be greatly appreciated!
