Nigel Asquith
Nigel Asquith Director Kinship Conservation Fellows Nigel Asquith Nigel Asquith is the Director of Strategy and Policy at the Santa Cruz-based Fundación Natura Bolivia (www.naturabolivia.org) (www.bolivianature.org), where since 2003, his team has helped create a new 734,000 hectares protected area and has set up 32 municipal Payments for Environmental Services (PES) water funds, which annually support 3,500 families with $250,000 worth of alternative development projects, thus helping them to conserve 135,000 hectares of biodiverse tropical forests. These "reciprocal watershed agreements" (RWA) have been replicated and scaled up by other organizations across the Andes. Nigel was a Kinship Conservation Fellow in 2005, and from 2005-2008, he directed the transition of the $17 million EcoFund Foundation to become a strategic conservation investor in northern Ecuador. He has also worked at the Smithsonian Institution, the Center for International Forestry Research, Conservation International, and the World Bank. Nigel's work is currently funded by the European Commission and the MacArthur Foundation, and he previously received grants from the National Science Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Blue Moon Fund, and the UK's Department for International Development. Nigel's technical expertise is in plant-animal relations in neotropical forests, ecosystem service valuation, policy analysis, and the impacts of the oil and gas sector on biodiversity. Nigel has an extensive research program, most recently based out of Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, assessing the feasibility of market-based tools for environmental management, and he was a Research fellow at Harvard's Sustainability Science Program in 2008/9 and 2013/14. He received a Bachelor of Arts from Oxford University in 1989, a master's in Ecology from the University of Illinois in 1994, a master's in Policy and a Ph.D. in Zoology from Duke University in 1999.
