Legacy Landscapes Fund (LLF) was set up to guarantee long-term conservation funding for nature, climate, and people. We aim to source significant public and private funding to finance a diverse portfolio of 30+ outstanding protected areas by 2030. By effectively conserving these “legacy landscapes”, we protect biodiversity, promote climate resilience, and foster equitable development.
Safeguard biodiversity in the world’s most important conservation areas
Guarantee long-term conservation funding that serves nature, climate, and people
Source significant public and private funding for a diverse portfolio of 30+ outstanding landscapes by 2030
LLF was established in late 2020 by the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development as an independent charitable foundation under German law.
Its financial resources stem from public and private sources. In addition to funding from the German Government through the KfW Development Bank, NORAD, and the French Development Agency (Agence Française de Développement), each site needs to have a private match-funding partner who contributes at least 5 million USD. These are philanthropic partners or corporate partners.
LLF aims to support conservation efforts in the Global South with long-term programme funding implemented by experienced NGOs.
