What reasonable policies could governments implement to incentivise NGOs and economic consulting firms to invest in national reserve conservation?

More specifically I want to know about how mining companies / economic advisory firms would be positively affected by such a policy. Telling them to go mine somewhere else for example is not a feasible policy to implement because the economy of the country would be negatively affected, as well as the company's economy.

    "investment" means you invest resources in expectation of receiving - presumably more - resources back at a later date. What specific resources would be received from "national reserve conservation?" (short of selling tickets to the reserve; which doesn't generate much income) – user4012 Jun 11 '17 at 17:06
  • You are talking about private national parks right? Carbon credits or some other anti-externals policy might qualify; some schemes you can get a reward for net plant growth. Sustainable logging requires 20-ish times as much land not being harvested as you can harvest in a year. Mining seems doubtful. – user9389 Jun 11 '17 at 21:25
  • FYI, they just developed some sort of moss pseudo-tree that is supposedly better than 200+ real trees at cleaning out pollution/CO2. Tested in Germany I think. – user4012 Jun 12 '17 at 16:47
