Financing Stronger Forests for Climate Resilience

Episode 27

Wildfires in the U.S. are increasing in frequency and severity due to the landscape-altering effects of past fire suppression policies and a changing climate. More than ever, it is essential to scale financing models for ecosystem restoration efforts that have the potential to reduce wildfire risk, improve watershed resilience and protect communities. Join us for an important conversation with Luke Carpenter, Investment Strategy Manager and Kim Seipp, Conservation Research Director from Blue Forest to discuss how innovative financial tools and forest management practices can help us address the devastating impacts of wildfires in the U.S.
