There has never been more money and political will for conservation and sustainability than in this decade. Yet investors and land managers are struggling to originate high-quality, de-risked, land use projects. The Landscape Finance Lab bridges this gap. It is a system to structure, derisk, launch, and fund sustainable land use deals at landscape scale – covering millions of hectares, catalysing major impact – including carbon sequestration, food security, poverty reduction and biodiversity conservation.

The Lab has expanded rapidly in the last six months in both staff and projects and now requires a high level strategic manager of finances and program administration. The position is particularly suited to a person with significant experience in managing complex projects and programs across multiple geographies and topics.
