Our vision

We envision a world in which community-based conservation is a widespread and effective approach integral to achieving local and global goals in biodiversity conservation, community empowerment, and poverty alleviation.

PRoject goals

Solicit input, via an online survey, from as many people as possible who have experience in community-based conservation to generate insights on major risks and opportunities anticipated for community-based conservation within the next 15 years. In other words, a horizon scan of what to expect and prepare for.

The goal is to share insights gained with policy-makers and grass-roots initiatives to ensure that community conservation initiatives keep successfully improving livelihoods and nature conservation.

Project Stage

Thank you for your massive participation! The survey closed in June 2021 and we have been working through all the valuable input. Please see our News & Outputs for further updates.
