"The course showed me the power of economics to help understand the complexity of managing our natural resources. I now see why many of the strategies that conservationists put in place don't have the impact we expect.”
Wildlife Conservation Network, USA
"The CSF course far exceeded my expectations. The depth of the material and quality of instruction, combined with the breadth of knowledge and experience brought to the table by the rest of the participants made for a really effective, inspiring, and practical learning experience. The cross-cultural and interdisciplinary exposure made every topic so interesting. I wish everyone in the conservation space had the chance to take this course."

"The course is definitely the most cost effective way of making environmentalists literate in economics.”
Isabel Felandro Llanos
“I not only learned about economic concepts that will help me in my career, facing environmental issues, but also this course gave me the opportunity to meet wonderful people from around the world. These people have inspired me to believe and to have hope for the challenges we are facing."

“I’ve already had six countries request support with the implementation of forest landscape restoration initiatives. One of the key deliverables is financial and economic analysis. Because of this course, I will be able to help perform this task better.”

"Good program and the best experience in learning that I have ever had. I therefore recommend this CSF Training Program in Conservation to all Environmentalists. Kudus to Kim Bonine and her Team members for organizing the successful session in 2013."
