Martha Rogers is a senior economist on The Nature Conservancy’s External Affairs team. In this role, she works to bring capacity to policy and finance work across the Conservancy. She is interested in using economic tools to better understand the broader impact of conservation on economies and populations.

During her time at the Conservancy, she has also served as the technical lead for the Conservancy’s groundbreaking collaboration with Dow, where she worked closely with Dow staff to develop tools and processes to implement the company’s ten-year Valuing Nature Goal. which aims to generate one billion dollars in business value from projects that are good for business and better for ecosystems. In addition, she has worked to build a broader case for investments in nature-based-solutions within the private sector, including work to understand the feasibility of a mangrove insurance product in the Gulf of Mexico region and of coral reef insurance in Asia and the Pacific.
