Abstract
The idea and practices that the private sector devotes to land conservation by
directly acquiring and managing land have developed for a long time and reached
great achievements in many countries such as the U.K. and the U.S. In recent
years, this idea, in the name of the “environment trust,” has drawn more and more
attention in Taiwan. This article intends to show that private approaches to land
conservation could play a critical role in Taiwan’s environmental governance and
argue that the legal instruments to be used in private land conservation are potentially
diverse, rather than only a charitable trust can be invoked. The comprehensive
understanding and comparison of the potential legal instruments in this article will help practitioners to match adequate instruments to specific real
contexts and help the legislature to devise a comprehensive law reform.
