Nigel Asquith Nigel Asquith, Ph.D., is the director of Strategy and Policy at the Santa Cruz-based Fundación Natura Bolivia, where his team set up 20 municipal PES water funds, which are annually supporting 600 families with $160,000 worth of alternative development projects, thus helping them to conserve 44,000 acres of biodiverse tropical forests. This model has been replicated and scaled up by other organizations in Peru, Colombia, and Ecuador. From 2005-2008, Nigel directed the transition of the $17 million EcoFund Foundation from being a reactive small donor, to a strategic conservation investor in northern Ecuador. Nigel also 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. 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, and 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 USAID, the European Commission, and the MacArthur Foundation, and he previously received grants from the Rockefeller Foundation, the Blue Moon Fund, and the UK's Department for International Development. top↑
