In 2020 the BCT will establish co-investment partnerships as a new delivery mechanism within the BCT’s Conservation Management Program.
The purpose of this mechanism is to increase the impact of BCT investment by entering partnerships that attract third-party investment and secure large-scale, high-value private land conservation (PLC) outcomes. Co-investors may be philanthropists, non-government organisations, private sector companies, institutions or individuals.
There will be a standing call for expressions of interest (EOIs). EOIs will be assessed by the BCT. Based on that initial assessment, the BCT Board may approve the BCT inviting the relevant landholders and co-investors to submit a detailed business case to the BCT for consideration.
The BCT will open a call for EOIs for co-investment partnerships in early 2020. At that time, additional information will be available on this page about this delivery mechanism, including eligibility requirements, assessment criteria, and the processes and requirements for expressions of interest and business cases.
