Conserving Private Lands

The article focuses on efforts by the Environmental Law Institute (ELI), partnering with environmental nonprofit organizations in seven countries, to help Latin American countries encourage private land conservation. ELI's 2003 report, "Legal Tools and Incentives for Private Land Conservation in Latin America: Building Models for Success," was utilized in the drafting of regulations in Columbia, Costa Rica, Honduras, and Peru. ELI helped Peru identify successful conservation models and close gaps in the law. This led to a dramatic increase in how much land is protected. In Costa Rica, ELI partners worked to improve legislation to improve the legal foundation for private reserves and conservation easements.
