Funding mechanisms for collaborative conservation activities

Although collaborative activities are aimed at increasing the efficiency of the PGRFA conservation efforts partly by outsourcing national activities on the regional or international level, additional funding is required. There are different funding sources, which can be roughly divided into two groups: domestic sources of funding from the public or private sector and external sources of funding from the public and from the private sector (Table 8-4).

See Virchow (1999a) for detailed information.

5.1.1 Existing funding mechanisms for collaborations

As can be seen in Table 8-4, there are a vast number of potential funding sources to be utilized for any conservation activity. However, not all possible funds are well adopted to the specific challenges of implementing conservation activities. Two categories of possible funding can be identified: existing funds and new funds. Utilizing existing sources means to reallocate existing funds, to increase the cost efficiency of conservation and utilization activities, and to reduce misallocation.
