The overall goal of this project is to advance knowledge of the long-term impacts of international funding for biodiversity conservation from private foundations and the factors associated with sustainable conservation gains over time. The project will analyze funding from private foundations, with a focus on MacArthur Foundation investment in conservation as a case study. Our team will focus on the task of “Comparison of impact based on analyzing text documents versus interviewing grantees”, developing and testing methodology to analyze the impacts of MacArthur Foundation-funded projects.
