Blue Forest Conservation's Forest Resilience Bond transforms existing public funding crises into investment opportunities by (1) aligning incentives of the Forest Service and other beneficiaries (water and electric utilities) to share in forest restoration costs just as they share in its benefits (reduced fire severity and augmented water flow) and, (2) utilizing investor capital to fund treatments upfront so beneficiaries repay only after realizing proven benefits.

Once restoration benefits are independently verified, beneficiaries collectively repay investors through pay-for-success contracts that are designed to share resulting cost savings with the Forest Service and utilities while providing competitive, market-rate returns to investors.
