Financial innovations for biodiversity: The Swiss Experience
MetadataShow full item record
In Switzerland, the issue of biodiversity protection is addressed through several sectoral policies. This paper analyzes two cases of sectoral policies: ecological direct payments, which are within the realm of Swiss agricultural policy; and the activities of the Swiss Foundation for the Conservation of Cultural Landscapes (Fonds Landschaft Schweiz, FLS) which is within the realm of Swiss conservation policy. Both cases represent examples of the use of financial instruments for the protection of biodiversity.
