Director of Policy
Nigel Asquith is the Director of Policy at the Santa Cruz-based Natura Foundation Bolivia, where, since 2003, his team has helped create a new 928,000 hectares protected area and has set up 36 municipal water funds. These funds annually support over 3,000 families with $250,000 worth of alternative development projects, thus helping to conserve over 180,000 hectares of biodiverse tropical forests. Called "reciprocal watershed agreements" (RWA), the practice has been replicated and scaled up by other organizations across the Andes. Mr. Asquith has worked at the Smithsonian Institution, the Center for International Forestry Research, Conservation International, and the World Bank. He 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 has a Bachelor of Art s from Oxford University and a PhD in Zoology from Duke University.
