A gendered perspective on the horizon in community conservation (March 2023)

In honour of International Woman’s day, 2023, we dissected some of the horizon scan’s findings from a gender-sensitive perspective. You can find the article in the IUCN’s Commission on Environmental, Economic and Social Policy (CEESP) March 2023 newsletter

Sharing insights via a policy briefing document (July 2022)

An amazing survey response! (July 2021)

The survey ran from mid-March to early June 2021. It is now closed. Sincere thanks to everyone who participated! We received more than 1,000 responses to our online survey from 109 nations, with 2,527 suggestions of threats and opportunities to community conservation. We have since grouped these into 261 topics and from that distilled 15 as a priority for attention by policy-makers, funders, grassroots management and conservation leaders. These 15 priority topics represent emerging or transforming issues, likely to substantially impact the effectiveness with which community conservation can advance its dual goal of supporting people and biodiversity.
