Carolinian Canada

Meet Daniel:

Daniel spearheaded the creation of a one-of-a-type alternative financial mechanism in Canada to reverse the trend of habitat loss in Southwestern Ontario. Recognized by the Nature Conservancy of Canada as “an excellent example of Canadian leadership in pay-for-success models,” Daniel’s conservation impact bond, implemented by @Carolinian Canada (https://www.linkedin.com/company/carolinian-canada-coalition/), offers North America’s longest-running ecoregional network (including First Nations, government, business, academia, and community organizations) a place-based approach to address the critical loss of habitat and landscape fragmentation. His model has received the Climate Leader recognition of Finance for the Future (offered by the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, Deloitte, and Accounting for Sustainability). Daniel brings professional experience and expertise originating and building multi-million-dollar partnerships and blended finance initiatives for economic development in emerging and frontier markets in collaboration with bilateral agencies, multilaterals, and development financial institutions.
