The materials in this guide were prepared with the support of the Wallace Global Fund and the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation by John Ganzi of Environment and Finance Enterprise, Frances Seymour, Director of the IFFE project at WRI, and Sandy Buffett, a consultant to WRI, with Navroz K. Dubash, Associate at WRI. The diagrams were prepared by Robin Dunn, a consultant to Environment and Finance Enterprise.
Many individuals contributed to the conceptualization and refinement of the materials during initial brainstorming sessions and subsequent reviews.
