Revolving funds are a mechanism for financing and funding conservation activities without grants.
In Australia, revolving funds have been used for land management and biodiversity conservation. They’re also now starting to be used to finance and fund sustainable waterway and catchment investments. There is a lot of scope for revolving fund mechanisms for water to be scaled up in Australia.

Sponsored by Marsden Jacob Associates, this webinar explains revolving funds for waterway and catchment investment, how they work, and how they can work best. They will talk through two leading examples of revolving water funds that are successfully up and running: the US Brandywine-Christina Revolving Water Fund and the Australian Murray-Darling Balanced Water Fund.
