How Can Conservation Help? Using Land Conservation to Address Other Economic and Social Issues

The June 2007 Pocantico workshop on “How Can Conservation Help?” was a deep dive into possible sources of new partners and approaches for private land conservation. Using the northeastern U.S. as a focus, experts offered powerful insights on how land conservation could help to address regional competitiveness, rural economic development, urban revitalization, energy security, climate change, and human health. The workshop allowed conservation leaders to consider fundamental drivers of land use change and explore ways to surf with those drivers rather than always swimming upstream against them.
