It's name--The Sun Dragon--may not even be the most unusual thing about the newest civic solar installation in Sebastopol.

 

The Sun Dragon's unusual appearance also offers some technical benefits, which Kyes explains in this audio clip.

Using economic analysis as a tool for environmental protection is a core philosophy driving the Sebastopol-based Conservation Strategy Fund.

John Reid, President and founder of the Conservation Strategy Fund, explains how he sees economics as a tool for increasing overall human happiness  

 CSF Mission

The mission of Conservation Strategy Fund is to teach environmental organizations around the world how to use economics and strategic analysis to conserve nature.

Carbon credits may become a potent economic tool for poor countries with extensive forest resources, an approach that Sebastopol's Conservation Strategy Fund is helping to promote.

Part of CSF's educational work involves teaching their partners how to articulate the linkage between preserved resources and economic benefits.

 

Much more detailed information about CSF can be found in their annual reports, which are posted online here. There is also a listing of current and recent projects here.
