Webinar: Revolving water funds @ Your Computer
Feb 19 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Webinar: Revolving water funds

Scaling up sustainable financing and funding for waterway and catchment conservation investments.

Revolving funds are a mechanism for financing and funding conservation activities without grants.
In Australia, revolving funds have been used for land management and biodiversity conservation. They’re also now starting to be used to finance and fund sustainable waterway and catchment investments. There is a lot of scope for revolving fund mechanisms for water to be scaled up in Australia.

In this webinar presenters from Marsden Jacob Associates will explain revolving funds for waterway and catchment investment, how they work, and how they can work best. They will talk through two leading examples of revolving water funds that are successfully up and running: the US Brandywine-Christina Revolving Water Fund and the Australian Murray-Darling Balanced Water Fund.
