Over the last decade, this course has become recognized as the premier applied economics training event for conservation professionals from around the world.  During the comprehensive two-week session, participants learn to use economics to be more strategic and successful in their conservation work, and experience a transformational shift in how they view environmental issues. The course covers economic fundamentals, natural resource and environmental economics, communication and negotiation techniques, and hands-on experience with cost-benefit analysis.

“I truly believe that I have received one, if not the best piece of schooling since my University days in the UK. Perhaps my way of appreciating the excellent multi-cultural training we received is to use it, and sure like rain we are using it!"  

- Peter Mbile, Cameroon 
"When talking to local government in the Amazon, you can only make the case for conservation areas by talking about monetary values and that’s exactly what the CSF course taught me to do. It enabled me to present a more sophisticated version of my ’romantic‘ arguments about the importance of parks and reserves."  

- Clarice Bassi, Brazil 
“This course really forces you to think in a completely different way, without forgetting what you already know about the environment."

- Angela Maria Mojica, Guatemala
