This is an exciting time for private lands conservation around the world. A diverse range of countries have developed and are protecting land using private lands conservation agreements, many of which have been adapted from conservation easements in the US, but with fascinating differences that are relevant to land trust practice in this country. Our panel of private lands conservation leaders will discuss agreements that are protecting habitat, species, and working lands in France, Spain, Finland, Australia, and Chile, and will touch on other geographies around the world. Land trusts in the US have a great deal to teach and to learn from these countries and their land protection agreements. Our panelists will discuss private lands agreements in both Common and Civil Law countries, and will explain how these agreements are structured, the conservation values they protect, how they are monitored and enforced, and the challenges and opportunities faced by the public and private organizations using them.
